BRIEFS: House budget bill up
Budget bill up
Republicans' first stab at balancing the state's $6.2 billion budget deficit is due for a full House vote tonight.
About $200 million of $1 billion in cuts proposed in the bill would come before July 1, with the rest in the next two-year budget cycle.
Democrats failed on Wednesday to send the measure back to be considered by committees, complaining that it was rushed through the process.
