Jefferson City, Mo. – The House Budget Committee spent nearly four hours Wednesday night amending and voting on bills that make up the state budget.
Committee members only made it through about a third of the budget bills before calling it a night.
House Budget Chair Allen Icet says so far they've identified 65 million dollars that can be trimmed from various departments.
"None of these should affect any services or anything. For the most part, it was either lapse, or funding that would be considered excess," says Icet.
