PROVIDENCE -

Rhode Island state lawmakers are continuing their review of Gov. Lincoln Chafee's $8.2 billion state budget proposal by giving close examination to education funding.
    
The House Finance Committee has scheduled a hearing Tuesday on proposed funding levels for primary and secondary education. Chafee's proposal would increase public education spending by $30 million.
    
At a hearing earlier in the day the committee is scheduled to review proposed spending on the governor's office and state Department of Revenue.
    
Lawmakers typically make significant changes to the governor's budget proposal before approving it.
