Baton Rouge, La (NBC33) — With millions of taxpayer dollars in their hands, state senators are getting their first look at the state's budget.
The Finance Committee is deciding where cuts can be made and where money needs to go.
It's far from a done deal - there are still questions about funding for State Police Training Classse to public/private partnerships.
The budget has to be approved by June 6; if not, a special session will be called.
