capitol_domeThe House and Senate debated their proposed 2015-17 budgets on the chamber floors Thursday.

The House passed its proposed $38.8 billion budget on Thursday afternoon 51-47.

The Senate held an overnight session, adjourning in the early morning hours, debating on about 70 amendments. After more than 10 hours of debate over amendments, the Senate adjourned without voting on the budget’s final passage. The Senate is scheduled to reconvene at 1 p.m. Monday.

TVW taped both floor debates. The 10-hour video of the Senate debate is available in the archives, as well as the House video. (Click on “more…” for video, if you are reading from the Capitol Record front page.)
