5/13/15 - Legislators make no progress on budget

May 12, 2015

Lawmakers met Tuesday just to keep the clock going but have made no progress on the reasons for the special session: the budget, Medicaid expansion, and a sexual abuse prevention law. Legislators are at an impasse over the budget. A two thirds majority is needed to get into savings, giving Democratic minority caucus members some clout. They say the budget must include Medicaid expansion and more money for education. Republican majority members say budget increases are the last thing they want.
