After the release of the budget last evening, legislators and others are beginning to examine the details of what it contains. It will likely be voted on by early next week at the latest. With the veto-proof majority held by the Republicans, major changes are unlikely - but perhaps not impossible.

- funding for religious organizations
- money alloted for 35 schools in senator's district
- suicide hotline funding excluded
- Jordan & Falls Lake pollution regulations on hold again.
