After huddling in closed budget caucuses on Wednesday, state senators will spend Thursday drafting and filing amendments to the $40.3 billion budget bill (S 3) that's scheduled for floor debate starting on Tuesday, May 23. Other than that, lawmakers are winding down their workload for the week on Beacon Hill.

Legislators, who operate under rules designed to prevent scheduling conflicts, crammed 12 committee hearings into Tuesday but have no hearings scheduled Thursday or Friday. Lawmakers rarely hold sessions or hearings on Fridays. Informal House and Senate sessions Thursday at 11 a.m. and the filing of Senate budget amendments by a 5 p.m. deadline will close much of the activity for the week.
