Notes from the meeting of the Senate Democratic Caucus...

...They're concerned that some very bad bills are going to slip through in the mad crush that is coming.

...As of 10 minutes ago (roughly 2:40 p.m.), nobody, including the Rep leadership in the Senate, had any clue as to when any part of the budget would move forward.

...A number of senators brought up some of the preparations that various state agencies are making for a shut down (warning campers that they might have to evacuate state parks if a budget doesn't pass and the parks have to close down for the 4th of July weekend, CPS letting folks know that a call to CPS may not be an option in the event of a situation and to be ready to call the police. Apparently, under the Republicans' emergency plan, Child Protective Services isn't a necessary function.

...They (the Dems) are planning for a long couple of days. As should we all. I probably won't be here tomorrow due to a dentist's appointment, and given today's activities ( and lack thereof), I'm thinking that will be a better use of my time.
