With 100 billion dollars of unfunded pension liability and millions in unpaid bills, we'll talk this hour about what the legislature accomplished during this session to try and solve the state's budget woes. We'll also talk about other big issues from this session - gambling, hydraulic fracturing, same sex marriage and concealed carry.
