The state Senate passed an operating budget late Thursday night, setting up negotiations in coming days with the House to work out differences between their respective budgets.

Later the House refused to accept the Senate’s budget, naming three lawmakers to a special committee that will negotiate a final budget with the Senate.

The Senate must first formally affirm its 13-7 budget vote and appoint its own members, which is expected to happen Friday morning.
