Indiana Lawmakers Push To Finish Regular Session

One week is left in the Indiana General Assembly's regular session and lawmakers still have a lot to cover.

Lawmakers must approve a new state budget before the end of the week.

Several issues are complicating the $26-billion budget.

Those include a circuit breaker relief plan that would allow slot machines at Hoosier horse tracks.

If the statehouse does not pass a budget by the time the session ends, it would force a special session of the general assembly.

Lawmakers say they are working hard to avoid a special session.

Some do not think there is a solid consensus on property taxes to pass the budget.
