Legislators are planning to extend the session by three days.
With no budget deal in sight, conferees say they need the extra time to reach a consensus.
The House and Senate remain at a stalemate over higher sales and income taxes.
The Senate budget includes the increases, the House budget does not.
A two-thirds majority vote by both chambers is required to extend the session.
But the House chief negotiator expressed doubt that three additional days will make a difference.
