Lawmakers to examine budget cuts

Among the agenda items for the two-day meeting that starts Wednesday: How school districts are coping with this year's budget cuts; impacts of statewide personnel cuts; an update on cuts in health insurance for part-time state employees; and how state prisons and Medicaid are coping with the holdbacks.
