FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentucky lawmakers are continuing budget negotiations out of public view.

House and Senate leaders met privately on Wednesday as they seek to reach a compromise on how to spend more than $70 billion of state and federal tax dollars over the next two years.

Senate budget chairman Chris McDaniel and House budget chairman Steven Rudy said lawmakers will not formally meet again until Thursday. But they said private discussions would be ongoing.

Dozens of teachers lined the hallway outside of a meeting room in the Kentucky Capitol Annex, holding signs asking lawmakers to support public education.
