No education budget talks yet
Noticeably absent in the state Capitol on Wednesday: A conference committee on the state's Pre-K-12 education budget.
Several conference committees didn't meet on the first day of budget negotiations. But a Pre-K-12 meeting had been initially scheduled for 8 a.m. Then it was cancelled. And no meetings have been scheduled yet for Thursday, which is striking given the tight deadline lawmakers are on to decide a major chunk of the state budget.
