Iowa Lawmakers Set Overall Budget Number

DES MOINES, (AP) - Iowa lawmakers say they have an agreement for an overall budget figure, a signal that the end of the legislative session may not be far behind.

Today, legislative leaders said that they have a deal to set the state general fund budget at just under $6.5 billion for the coming fiscal year that starts July 1st. Senate and House leaders say votes could start on individual budget bills as early as tomorrow.

Democratic Senate Majority Leader Mike Gronstal and Republican Speaker Kraig Paulsen both say they are moving forward on two key issues of the session - education policy and property tax reductions. But they say there has been less progress on whether to expand Medicaid or approve an alternate low-income health plan.
