An effort to reach a state budget deal for the next two years is coming down to the wire now as House and Senate representatives roll up their sleeves to find common ground on a single document by Thursday.
After a number of hearings across the state in which they heard from many citizens on their priorities and after coming up with respective budgets in the Senate and House, the two bodies began to come to terms on about $13 billion in spending priorities.
When they do that, it goes to the governor, who has his own budget priorities on a similar amount of money.
