Lawmakers Claim Final Budget Deal Reached – Could Be Voted on Friday
Coming in at the 11th hour, a budget deal could prevent a government shutdown.
Legislators in Olympia say they’ve reached a budget deal that will prevent many state agencies from shutting down July 1.
State House Speaker Ross Hunter (D) said he and GOP leaders in the Senate finalized the spending plan Thursday morning. No details, however, were offered until Hunter and others said they could speak with their colleagues.
More details about what’s IN the plan are hopefully going to be released shortly.
