Budget bills to be addressed as the special session wraps up
Posted on 6/1/2018 2:09:00 PM.

It’ll be a big day in the Senate Sunday as the upper chamber takes on tax and budget bills that could decide the fate of 648 million dollar fiscal cliff that threatens to wreck higher ed, TOPS, and healthcare. Political Analyst Bernie Pinsonat says the House won’t have much time to debate the budget and tax plans the Senate agrees too with a June 4th deadline quickly approaching.

“But at the same time, you’ve got to go back to the house, and almost at the very last minute. And will the house concur? That’s the big 64,000 dollar question.”
