Lawmakers Finish Big Week

State lawmakers wrapped up a busy week today before the July Fourth holiday.

This week, lawmakers finally broke the logjam in budget negotiations, with an unusual open conference committee meeting in which House and Senate legislators came to an agreement on Medicaid shortfall numbers.

In the meantime, lawmakers pushed through other measures, including one House bill earlier in the week that would study removing law enforcement officers' personal information from online records.

Late last night, House lawmakers approved a bill that would remove some unemployment records from public view. And they approved a measure repealing ferry tolls. All those bills now head to the Senate. It's not clear whether the Senate will consider them next week.

The House is holding skeleton sessions for which most members don't have to be present.
