JUNEAU -

State Senate President Charlie Huggins says a tentative agreement has been reached on an education package.

A conference committee was scheduled to meet Wednesday evening to discuss the details.

The Senate's chief negotiator, Kevin Meyer, said Wednesday afternoon the House had made a "respectful offer" that he hoped to sell to his caucus. Word about the tentative agreement surfaced after the caucus broke around 6:30 p.m. Wednesday.

Much of the day was marked by delayed meetings and floor sessions, while majority caucuses met and talks continued between the Senate and House's chief negotiators, Meyer and Republican Rep. Mike Hawker.

Failure to reach agreement on an education package by the scheduled end of session Sunday sent lawmakers into overtime. Wednesday marked Day 93 of what was scheduled to be a 90-day session.
