East Baton Rouge - Lawmakers on the senate finance committee are spending their memorial day talking the state budget. That committee decided today to use more than 260 million dollars in one time money in the budget. That means deep cuts across the state could be spared. If the cuts were to happen, some of the hardest hit agencies would have been to higher education and health care. It's not approved just yet. The bill goes to the senate floor for a debate. The session has to end one week from today.
