Statehouse Officials Working On Budget Before Indiana Government Shutdown

Last updated on Sunday, June 28, 2009

(STATEHOUSE) - Four official negotiators and 13 legislative advisors are negotiating at the statehouse today in the hopes of presenting a budget for a vote when the house and senate reconvene tomorrow (Monday) afternoon.

A budget must pass by midnight Tuesday to avert a government shutdown.

The house and senate first must agree whether to write a budget covering one year or two.

Beyond that, the two biggest hurdles are school funding and health funding.
