State Rep. Chris Turner, D-Arlington, and other representatives on the House floor during Tuesday's budget debate.

The top local stories this morning from the KERA Newsroom: The Texas House of Representatives passed their version of a budget after more than 17 hours of debate. Also, Dallas County District Attorney Susan Hawk makes her first public appearance after last week's news of her entering treatment to get off painkillers.

Finally, our Breakthroughs series, Growing Up After Cancer, continues with the aftermath of Jude Cobler's bone marrow transplant. It not only affected him physically, it also changed his relationship with his brother, Joshua. 

You can listen to stories from North Texas weekdays at 8:20 a.m. and 6:20 p.m. on KERA 90.1 FM.
