RICHMOND, Va. (CBS19 NEWS) -- State lawmakers were back in Richmond on Friday for a one-day session to consider Governor Glenn Youngkin's proposed changes to the state budget.

Earlier this week, Youngkin sent 38 budget amendments back to the General Assembly, giving lawmakers less than two weeks to pass a spending plan before the June 30 deadline.

Some of Youngkin's amendments would restrict public funding for abortion, expand alternatives to traditional public schools, push colleges and universities to enact plans to promote free speech, suspend the state's gas tax for three months, and make protests outside the homes of U.S. Supreme Court justices or courthouses a felony offense.

Many of the proposals will face tough opposition in the Democratic-controlled Senate, but Senator Creigh Deeds says they'll get the budget finished.

"I would anticipate that we will be through with those amendments today," he said. "They will go back to the governor, and then he will have to decide whether he will sign the budget or veto certain items within the budget. But we will have a budget by July 1."

One of the first amendments taken up in the GOP-controlled House of Delegates, involving protesting outside the homes of justices, faced opposition and some Republicans motioned to shelve the proposal for now.

But the House did vote to prohibit state Medicaid from covering abortions in certain cases.
