COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) –

Lawmakers could vote on a compromised version of an $8-billion state budget Tuesday.

Last week a legislative panel made up of House and Senate lawmakers signed off on a budget for next year.

As it is now, the plan puts $150 million into shoring up the state pension system for public workers, $55 million will go to upgrading K through 12 schools and $68 million will help with Hurricane Matthew cleanup costs.

Lawmakers could possibly vote Tuesday at noon.
