The houses hope to have their revenue reports and forecasts done by February 28th. They believe negotiations will be complete by March 22nd and that adoption of the budgets will take place between March 27th and 29th.

The Governor will likely be releasing his 30 day amendments this coming Thursday. We are still hopeful that he will include funding for early voting in his amendments.
