The Republican-dominated majority announced the rollout tonight, saying it would be a bipartisan proposal. Republican Sen. Andy Hill and Democratic Sen. Jim Hargrove have been negotiating a plan.

Members of the Senate majority have said they will not raise taxes or extend expiring taxes and that they will accept federal Medicaid expansion money.
