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.
