DOVER, Del. (AP) - Members of the Delaware legislature’s budget writing committee are getting back to work as they continue to fashion a spending plan for the fiscal year starting July 1.

The Joint Finance Committee was to reconvene Tuesday as members continue to work through a list of about $37 million in suggested changes to Gov. Jack Markell’s proposed budget that administration officials developed amid recent steady revenue declines.

While some of the proposed revisions involve minor cuts to the governor’s budget request, other call for replacing general fund money with funds from other sources, such as Medicare rebates, premiums from bond sales, and tobacco settlement reserve funds.

While working on the budget for next year, administration officials also must still close multimillion-dollar deficit for the current year in the next few weeks.
