Colorado lawmakers are hoping to break the boom and bust cycles in the state budget.

They will be holding a second round of hearings Thursday asking state budget officials, think tank analysts and representatives of Colorado's 64 counties and 260 municipalities for their suggestions.

Lawmakers learned last month they have to make more budget cuts because tax revenue is expected to drop $384 million more than they expected.

The total shortfall could grow as high as $838 million next year.
