The plan is for the two houses to take up about 16 bills today, with the remaining bills being pushed over to Saturday, said John Vigna, spokesman for the Speaker's Office.

If lawmakers are ahead of schedule, they will attempt to take up more bills in hopes of not having to come in Saturday, Vigna said.

There are 22 bills in the budget package. Each house has to approve the main budget and the accompanying trailer bills.
