(Listen to the House Democrat announcement here.) Not to be outdone, Senate Democrats released a capital budget and an operating budget and held public hearings on their versions of transportation and capital budgets. On Monday the Senate Ways & Means Committee will take public testimony on the Senate Chair proposed operating budget. Read more here.
