It now appears likely the General Assembly session will head into overtime.
House and Senate negotiators say they are making progress on the state budget, but have not completed an agreement.
The fatigue is showing in Richmond, where state lawmakers were hoping to wrap up the budget and the General Assembly session by Saturday afternoon.
Budget negotiators say they have made progress, splitting the difference on their major spending priorities, but they're still working on many of the specifics.
"Having gone through a session where we reduced six, seven billion dollars, this is an easier exercise, and whether we save money in the rainy day fund or whether we try to regain lost ground, we're moving in the right direction," said Bristol Senator William Wampler.
I feel the split is very fair. I'm happy with it," said Colonial Heights Delegate and House Majority Leader Kirk Cox. "I'll be happier when we work out the various details because there really are a lot. When you look at something like health there must be 75 different items with the money, so it's not like it's solved yet," he said.
Friday afternoon, Cox said there was still a slim chance lawmakers would get out on time, but it now appears that they won't be able to wrap up work on the state budget and head home before Sunday.
