Budget fix moves toward governor's desk

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - An agreement designed to close a hole in
this year's budget and ease cuts for education, health care,
prisons and public safety is expected to reach the governor's desk
this week.
Oklahoma lawmakers will begin their fifth week of the
legislative session on Monday when they report to the Capitol at
Oklahoma City.
The Legislature wrapped up its first phase of committee work
last week and now begins taking up bills on the floor of the House
and Senate.
Bills detailing a budget fix agreed upon last week by the
governor and legislative leaders for the current year's budget have
cleared committees and now must be approved on the floor of the
Senate and sent to the governor. Lawmakers have said the bills must
be signed into law this week to prevent cuts at the Oklahoma Health
Care Authority and furloughs of state troopers.
