There have been talks about the assembly and senate working on the state budget separately. State Senator Tom Tiffany (R-Hazelhurst), who is a member of the Joint Finance Committee, says he's optimistic it won't come to that. "We haven't done that since I've been in the legislature," said Sen. Tiffany.
