Jefferson City, MO –

Missouri's state Constitution gives lawmakers in Jefferson City until Friday (May 9) to pass a budget. Negotiators in both the House and Senate came to an agreement on a $19 billion spending plan very early Tuesday morning.

The budget is still around $150 million out of balance. That could force the governor to make even more cuts, unless lawmakers can find more money. Missy Shelton prepared this report from Jefferson City.
