Mississippi lawmakers have left the Capitol and will return May 26 to try to finish a budget for the fiscal year that begins July 1.

House and Senate leaders said Friday that budget negotiators wanted more time to watch tax collection trends and to consider how the federal stimulus money might affect Mississippi.

Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant told senators Friday that budget discussions are "at a challenging point just now."
