HB 1700 -- Day 2

April 17th, 2014

State House and Senate negotiators on Thursday worked through dozens of items in the state budget but did not announce any major spending decisions.

Sen. David Ige, the lead Senate negotiator, joked that the conference committee would reconvene at 7 a.m. on Sunday -- Easter. "You guys are actually paying attention," he said after lawmakers and some in the audience laughed.

While key negotiators and staff will work in private over the next few days, the next public meeting is at 3 p.m. on Monday.
