The tentative agreement, which has smaller cuts than the Senate and House were advancing, protects public schools, higher education and services for the state's poorest residents, Justice said.

It would raise the state sales tax from 6 percent to 7 percent, add a corporate revenues tax of 0.00045 percent and in 2018 establish new income tax tiers cutting the current rate 20 percent.

"I hate the fact that I have to sign a proclamation to extend the session for one day", Justice said in a post on his Twitter account.

Justice outlined a proposal that he said calls a consumer tax increase, a "rich man's tax" and a business tax. "This is the third state in a row to pass a medical marijuana bill through a Republican-controlled House and Senate".

Justice said in his press release the objective of the extended session was to reach an agreement for the budget of the state.
