Senate Republicans emerged from an hour-long caucus this morning and went straight to the floor, after a discussion they said focused on the state budget. Senate Assistant Majority Leader Joe Stegner, R-Lewiston, said the discussion covered not only the budget target that the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee plans to set tomorrow morning, but the budget challenges facing all state agencies.
