After a long week of budget negotiations, it looks like we are close to resolving the differences. Both Speaker Tim Moore and Senator Harry Brown (the lead Senate budget writer) took to Twitter to state their belief that a budget deal will be reached by the end of the week. If a deal is finally reached, over the weekend staff will prepare the final documents that will allow us to vote next week, ahead of the expiration of the latest continuing resolution. Although this has been a frustrating budget year, if we are able to keep our House priorities intact, including full funding of Teaching Assistants and funding for Driver’s Education, it will be worth the extra time and expense this legislative session has cost the state.
