The Capitol is always a rumor mill the last week of session. Well, it is a rumor mill period, but especially as the final details are sorted out and lawmakers start to feel a sense of urgency.
The Legislature has to be done by 5 p.m. tomorrow. But many are talking about finishing a day early. This would give lawmakers something to brag about. They finished their work not only on time, but early.
There are still dozens of bills in conference, and several even already on agendas. But as the clock ticks by, lawmakers are moving a little quicker today. The only bill lawmakers need to pass is a one-time funds bill that spends the rest of the $7.1 billion state budget. If that can be done, they rest may fall by the wayside. Only time will tell……..check back for updates.
