Over three hours into the meeting...

...and just one bill completed. I'm out of here. I'll do a more complete write-up when I get home.

For the record, after that three hours, after the rejection of every Democratic amendment to try to soften the blow on the state's most vulnerable populations, public testimony that was unanimously opposed to the proposed budget, the Republican budget bill (striker to SB1188) passed on a party-line vote.

BTW - they spent around 15 minutes conducting the actual vote on the bill (most of them wanted to explain their votes). During that period, Ron Gould spent most of the time looking up AC units on the internet (presumably for his business in Lake Havasu)...If I got any good pics, I'll upload them later.
