(#3115)

Program 3117
2/25/05: The governor and the legislature seemed close to an agreement on the budget. But at week’s end, Republican senators, cued by the governor, were holding out for a lower debt level for new bonds. Democrats are still holding out for more projects funded by those bonds. (#3117)
