Nebraska lawmakers have only one more day to introduce bills in their budget-cutting special session.

Friday is the last day senators can introduce bills to help deal with a projected $334 million shortfall in the state's two-year budget.

A dozen bills have been introduced so far since the session began on Wednesday.

The Appropriations Committee will continue hearings on Friday to learn about the impact of the cuts Gov. Dave Heineman proposed.
