Intro:  The Missouri Senate received more than 1500 e-mails in its campaign to cut spending in state government.
RunTime:  0:34
OutCue:  SOC

Wrap: Committees are set to review the e-mails and propose ideas Tuesday to deal with the largest budget gap in recent memory.

Senate Majority Leader Kevin Engler of eastern Missouri said he's excited about the response from the public.

Actuality:  ENG.WAV
Run Time:  00:14
Description: I also want to say though that not only the 1500 suggestions, the members have ideas on how to consolidate. The administration has ideas, and I want to applaud the governor and his staff. There's going to be department heads at every one of these meetings.

The public can continue to submit suggestions to the Web site.

From the state Capitol, I'm Emily Coleman.
