The House Finance Committee is expected to vote Tuesday night on the legislative version of Governor Raimondo’s spending plan.

House Speaker Nicholas Mattiello declined to release details about the budget Monday, but said "substantial agreement" had been reached.

“The budget is a complex document, so we’re looking at individual issues," said Mattiello. "And when we have a final document, you’ll see it.”

Raimondo unveiled her almost $9 spending plan in February.

The legislature traditionally makes changes to the governor’s budget and passes it before ending the General Assembly session.

Some of the key questions involving the legislative budget are whether it will include changes to tax policy and cuts to Raimondo’s proposed economic incentives. Charter school advocates are also watching to see whether the legislature will reduce proposed cuts to their funding.
