BUDGET YES --EXPANSION OF BOTTLE DEPOSIT LAW --NOT YET

State lawmakers have approved a compromise $36.5 billion budget. The budget rejects an effort to expand the state's bottle deposit law to include sports drinks and other beverages. A question that could expand the law is heading to the November ballot. The budget also includes about $73 million in casino licensing and slot parlor revenues, despite a separate ballot question that could repeal the 2011 casino law.
