Time Running Out to Pass a State Budget on Time




It is crunch time on the state budget. 

It's due in less than a week, and many lawmakers worked through the weekend to try to get it done.

Senate Majority Leader John Flanagan says there are nearly $1 billion dollars in proposed new taxes to sort through.

Lawmakers are also trying to account for lost state and local taxes from federal tax law changes. 

The spending plan would need to be completed by Tuesday for votes on Thursday in order to pass on time.
