With three days to go in a special legislative session, a plan to deal with a $304 million dollar revenue shortfall in the current state budget remains a work in progress.
Both the House and Senate have approved separate plans.
The House has adopted a proposal that calls for $115 million in state spending cuts and the potential use of $75 million in "rainy day" funds. The Senate plan calls for $85 million dollars worth of cuts and the use of $99 million in reserve funds.
But the use of "rainy day" money is facing opposition in the House where two-thirds of members would have to approve it. House leaders do not have the votes required to tap the reserve fund.
