The House passed more than 50 budget bills Tuesday, and those will go to the Senate for more discussion.

The Senate Appropriations Committee also passed a long list of budget bills for various agencies. Those move to the full Senate, and will then go to the House.

Leaders from the House and Senate typically work out final versions of legislative budget bills at the end of a three-month session. The deadline is in late March.
