New development in the budget saga (not sure if it qualifies as high drama or low comedy, but this mess deserves its own TV show...maybe Trey Parker and Matt Stone, the creators of South Park???) -
When I checked the lege's Senate committee agendas page, I noticed that the agenda for today's Senate Appropriations meeting has been pulled.
The Education Committee agenda for consideration of the tax packages still exists, so I'm not sure if this means that the Republicans' budget deal is dead, or just being reworked.
Heading down to the lege; will look into this when I get there.
Note: this could all be fixed by the time I get there. Expect a lot of fluidity in these situations for the next couple of days.
