House - Senate Budget Talks At a Standstill

Frankfort, KY – House and Senate budget negotiators have gone their separate ways. The breakdown in negotiations came today after about three hours of talks. As he exited, Senate minority floor leader Ed Worley said no further negotiations have been scheduled. Aide to the house speaker Brian Wilkerson says it's difficult to say when budget talks will resume.

If no budget agreement is reached on Wednesday, the legislature would have no time to over ride any vetoes issued by the Governor.
