Up in the air tonight is the possibility of progress on the state budget. The current budget expires June 30Th. State leaders have failed to reach a compromise on many issues, particularly the Governor's new gross tax receipts plan.
Last week legislators agreed on a temporary budget to keep talks going for another 30 days, State Representative Chuck Jefferson has faith in the legislature's ability to finalize the temporary budget and find an end to the stalemate.
If the deadlock drags on too long, the state might not be able to pay its employees.
