Perdue to start special session soon

April 12, 2004

Warm Springs- Legislators did not beat the deadline to pass a balanced state budget Wednesday night.

Perdue calls the session successful, but not successful enough to pull the out of the red.

"We want to give people notice so they just don't have to come back up within 48 hours of 72 hours. We're trying to put as much order in this process as possible, and I say it will probably be within the next two to four weeks," says Perdue.

The governor would not say if he'll push any new legislation through during the extra session, but he is disappointed lawmakers didn't pass ethics legislation.
