On The Ledge: State Budget Finally Approved
We now bring you a recurring segment we are calling, "On the Ledge." You know, about the goings-on with the state legislature.

Joining us out On The Ledge was Howie Fischer of Capitol Media Services to help us sort out what happened and what happens next.
