Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald tells that he’s “got the votes” to pass the biennial budget.

The Senate is back in session after a three-hour recess, as GOP leaders negotiated with Senate hold-outs to try to get enough votes for the budget.

Fitzgerald said in a brief interview that he’s got enough votes to pass the budget but declined to share how many GOP senators will vote for it, saying he doesn’t “want to make any assumptions on a couple of the senators.” But he added it would pass without any Dem support.

The chamber was scheduled to meet at 9:30 a.m. today but recessed shortly after gaveling in.
