Assembly Minority Leader Connie Conway doesn't like the trigger - that is, the cuts that will take effect if revenues prove lower than projected.
Conway: "If the trigger helps them sell this as being balanced somehow, okay, great. But it's what they choose to cut."
Conway wants to see other areas of the budget cut before education and public safety.
Meantime, the Republican Senators who've spent the last few months talking with the governor are blaming the Democrats for being unwilling to compromise. Joe Justin is chief of staff to Senator Bill Emmerson:
Justin: "I think we saw the Democrats capitulate to the labor unions who fund their campaigns. At the end of the day, they didn't want a deal. And they didn't want a deal in March and they don't want a deal today."
Justin says talks continued over this past weekend, but he says Democrats weren't willing to budge.
