There's a full house in JFAC this morning for the first meeting of the Joint Finance-Appropriations Committee, the panel that writes the state budget. After some preliminaries, the joint committee is now hearing from Wayne Hammon, Gov. Butch Otter's budget chief, about the governor's budget proposal. This will be key lawmakers' chance to question the governor's staff about the proposals.
