Wrap: The issue of debate is a bill that includes cutting back tax credits and creates tax incentives like the China Hub.

The Senate sent its revised version to the House last week.

Now the House Speaker has set a deadline for Friday.

The problem is no one has given the House's revisions to the Senate.

Senator Kevin Engler of Farmington says he fears the House won't cut any tax credits.

Actuality:  ENGLER.WAV
Run Time:  00:07
Description: "The other end of the building doesn't seem to be in too big a hurry to tell us what their intention is on the bill we sent over."

Engler also says the House expects the Senate to "take it or leave it," meaning there would be no negotiation.

The Senate will meet tonight to decide whether or not they will end the special session.
