The House and Senate are expected vote on each others amended budget proposals - but still neither is expected to pass.

[SUPER=03-Richmond/Last Week;]

The House added amendments that would put an increase to sales and income taxes to a statewide referendum, and closes some corporate tax loopholes. The budget, passed on a 60-35 vote, faces a vote tomorrow in the Senate, where it's expected to be rejected. That would put the budget impasse back into the hands of House and Senate negotiators who have failed to reach a compromise. Both houses will meet this afternoon at 3-o'clock.

Less than a week later Dylan was re- admitted to the hospital after developing a fever. His father, Rick, says Dylan is doing better and should be back at home next week.

[OUT Q=that contain some lead]

There are ways to reduce the risk of exposure. Make sure to flush your pipes before drinking the water. You do this by running the water for at least 60 seconds until water becomes as cold as it can get.
It's also important to only use cold water for drinking and cooking. Hot water is more likely to contain higher levels of lead because hot water causes more lead to dissolve off the pipes or the soder. A water filter may also help but make sure the label say it can be used for lead reduction.
A high exposure to lead can cause health problems particularly for children under six.
