Majority Republicans in the State Assembly struggled through the night trying to pass a proposed constitutional amendment to limit government spending.
Lawmakers killed the first version draft before they worked on another draft of the bill.
It all centers on the controversial "Assembly Joint Resolution 77." That would change the State Constitution to limit how much local and state governments can collect in taxes.
