Budget talk

OK, it seems that nothing significant will be done today regarding the budget.

Apparently, the Secretary of State has told lege leadership that they have a few more days to pass a referendum and get it on the ballot for November.

Think of it as a statewide version of what happened when the Senate shut off the clocks on June 30 to maintain the illusion that they had passed a budget before the start of the new fiscal year.

Anyway, today's session is expected to be mostly a pro forma one - as I write this at 1:02, there are no Senators on the floor, though activity is increasing.

More later...
