BOSTON (AP) — The Massachusetts House has completed work on a $38 billion state budget for the fiscal year that begins on July 1.

The spending plan was approved on a unanimous vote Wednesday after three days of debate. Republicans, who typically vote against the final budget, joined with the Democratic majority in supporting the package.

Baker warned of a $1.8 billion structural gap between revenues and anticipated spending.
