The state budget is still in the House of Representatives and it has to be finished by May fifteenth.

Speaker of the House Catherine Hanaway says the House is waiting to see how much revenue they will have to work with before the budget is sent to the Senate. This could be as late as April fifteenth.

Senate President Pro Tem Peter Kinder says the time constraint will not be a problem for the Senate.
