2:45 - HB2012, Higher Ed BRB. Holding the vote open again. For Gorman, Again.
2:42 - Passes. Finally.
2:40 - HB2011, K-12 Education BRB. Apparently, Burns has embraced his inner Mussolini, because this railroad is running on schedule again. Though Pam Gorman is doing her level best to show her displeasure by withholding her votes until long after the others have voted.
