Final budget landed on lawmakers' desks at 8:35 p.m.

It's going to be a very long final day in the 2014 legislative session Friday. Forget that end-of-session happy hour celebration. Or at least postpone it.

The conference report -- the fancy name for the compromise state budget (HB 5001) -- reached all 160 lawmakers' desks at 8:35 p.m. Tuesday, which started the mandatory 72-hour cooling-off period before the budget can be adopted by both chambers.

As a result, the 2014 session cannot end until at least 8:35 p.m. Friday. If things should go awry, the Senate president and House speaker will have to pass an emergency resolution if the session is to go past midnight Friday.
