Today was the 21st Legislative Day. As discussed in the blog a few days ago, our Constitution limits each regular session to 30 Legislative Days...9 days remain in this session; far from the ideal situation to address the perennial budget crisis.
In today’s action the press reported the House was poised to vote on a handful of tax increases, further setting up the House version of the General Fund Budget. However, as the day progressed, an apparent shift away from supporting the proposed taxes was reported...and so we wait and the clock continues to tick on the 2015 Session.
In closing I want to thank everyone for all the Happy Birthday wishes today!
