ST. PAUL - The second House tax bill is ready for the full House to debate, probably on Friday.

After legislators cut taxes $443 million a couple of weeks ago, the House Ways and Means Committee on Tuesday approved $103 million more in cuts. They include breaks for homeowners, farmers, renters and businesses.

The new breaks focus on property taxes.

The Senate likely will debate the tax bill next week.

The House is expected Thursday to take up a bill making changes in the $39 billion, two-year budget lawmakers passed last year. Senators could look at a similar bill as early as Friday.

Senators had planned to meet Saturday, but leaders announced Tuesday that will not happen.

On Thursday, senators plan to debate a bill written to reduce school bullying.
