Lawmakers agree on $6.5 billion budget figure


State lawmakers say they have agreed to a budget which could signal the end of the legislative session.

Legislative leaders say they will set the state's general budget at $6.5 billion dollars for the fiscal year which begins July 1.

The senate and house will also move forward on education reform and property tax reduction.

Lawmakers say no progress is being made on expanding medicaid or approving an alternate low-income health plan.
