Many Lawmakers Have Mixed Opinions on Budget Agreement

Many lawmakers left the Statehouse this week with mixed emotions. House and Senate leaders struggled to come to a budget agreement in the face of a half-billion dollar deficit. After weeks of negotiations they settled on a budget that had significant cuts to state services and education, but will leave the state with a 50 million dollar reserve. Senate President Steve Morris is a Republican from Hugoton. He’s one of the legislators that hopes to reverse cuts to education in coming years.

Lawmakers officially ended the session this week. Tune in later this hour, when we'll have a recap of some of the most memorable points in the 2011 Legislature.
