State lawmakers have come to an agreement on a budget that makes nearly across-the-board spending cuts, enacts performance funding for higher education and puts more money into the ailing state pension systems.
House Speaker Greg Stumbo called it “an adequate and effective blend” of the House, Senate and Gov. Matt Bevin’s budget priorities.
Senate President Robert Stivers said the bill was ready for a vote.
“I believe we have an agreement on all issues related to the budget,” Stivers said.
