Assembly passes budget repair bill

After a record-long floor session, the Assembly passed the budget repair bill on a 51-17 vote. The bill now goes to the Senate, though a vote in that house cannot take place until a quorum is present. Fourteen Senate Democrats left the state last week to avoid a vote on the bill, leaving the 19 Republicans one member short of a quorum.
