Budget Is Done--On To Conference Committee

The Massachusetts Senate is  green-lighting the 2019 budget.  

Lawmakers agreed to a nearly  41-and-a-half-billion-dollar budget overnight, adding over 75-million  dollars in spending for this upcoming year.  

Despite wrapping up debate  at 12:40 this morning, Senate President Harriette Chandler commended the  effort, calling it "one of the smoothest budget processes to date."  

A  committee will now work out compromises between the Senate and the House  budget, which was approved last month.

That process is expected to push near the July deadline.
