MA Budget Moving Forward
(wfcr) - A Massachusetts legislative conference committee will work out a compromise state budget, now that the House and Senate have finished work on their spending proposals. Work on the Senate budget was completed last week. Senator Stan Rosenberg of Amherst says with the state facing a $1-billion deficit, there won't be a lot of differences for the conference committee to iron out.
