Tuesday state lawmakers reconvene after a three-week recess with a huge task on their hands. Legislators will attempt to balance the budget with a $394 million shortfall.

Many say education, which accounts for two thirds of the budget, is a top priority. Twenty-six days are left in General Assembly.

Patton has suggested the need to raise taxes while other lawmakers say we need to cut spending in state travel and personal service contracts.
