Special session notes

Well, the Governor finally sent over the proclamation so that they can actually hold the special session.

I arrived at the Capitol at roughly 12:40 p.m. for the D17 press conference. At that point, a little over two hours before the special session was scheduled to go off, the Governor and her staff hadn't sent over the paperwork that would allow the lege to meet in a special session.

However, now everything has been squared away (and deals made?) to allow official business to take place.

On the lege's website, 4 bills have been posted for the special session - SB1001, dealing with general appropriations; SB1002, K-12 budget reconciliation (cut $144 million and soft capital); SB1003, general revenues (taking all license and permit fees from agencies to the general fund, plus other stuff); and SB1004, fixing the problems they created with mortgages.

More later...
