This blog isn’t concerned about whether the Lt. Gov’s actions yesterday were legal or not. I’ll let you all worry about that on your own time. What concerns us here is that the Senate is moving. Business is being done. The word now is that the budgets will be passed during the regular session, and no special session will be needed.
I have an open line of communication with our lobbyist, and he remains hopeful that we can get at least our local bills passed before the session expires; possibly our statewide bill, too. Nothing is a guarantee at this point because the Senate has gone off the deep end and we can’t predict what they’ll do.
Just wanted to throw out a quick note that it looks like a special session may have been averted, and we are working to get things done right now. I’ll post again as soon as I know more.
