State Senate Republicans have unveiled a proposal aimed at ending a budget stalemate with the Assembly.
The plan includes all areas of the budget lawmakers have already agreed upon, as well as funding for K-12 education and the Senate’s version of transportation funding.
Senate Republican Leader Scott Fitzgerald says they want to get both chambers to resume committee work on the budget.
“If we can get the committee back in, they can work off of the papers, work off the decisions made by the caucuses, maybe add a few things that brings members on at the end of the day,” he explained.
The overall plan is unlikely to see much support in the Assembly though, since it still relies on about $712,000,000 in borrowing to fund transportation, something Republican leaders over there have repeatedly said they do not want to see included in the budget.
