House and Senate budget writers completed their work on the state’s $13 billion budget for fiscal years 2020 and 2021 on Wednesday, with floor votes scheduled in both chambers for June 27.

On the third and final day of negotiations, the joint conference committee of four senators and five representatives agreed to strip a proposal for paid family medical leave from the budget, add $138 million in aid to education, and raise rates to Medicaid service providers by 3.1 percent each year, at a cost of $60 million over the two years.
