After a heated debate over proposed cuts to state agencies, lawmakers on the joint budget reached a compromise on Thursday. 

The committee is evenly split between Republicans and Democrats, and is pushing up against a deadline to introduce the budget next week. KUNC's State Capitol Reporter Bente Birkeland has more.
