I was going to title this post "Does A Special Session Make A Noise In The Woods If It Doesn't Do Anything?" but that was too long and snarky, and God knows I could never be accused of "snarkiness."
Anyway, it's looking more and more like tomorrow's 5th Special Session of the Arizona Legislature (in 2009 alone!) has already fizzled.
Mary Jo Pitzl at the Arizona Republic's Political Insider is reporting that they don't have the votes, even with some Dems crossing over, to pass anything through the House.
Mary Reinhart of The Arizona Guardian (subscription required) confirms this, but writes that the session is going forward anyway. Of course, as Tedski at Rum, Romanism, Rebellion advises, Brewer's call for a special session can't be rescinded, so they have to meet, pray, pledge, collect their per diems, and go home for the holidays. Maybe take some time to work on a few bills for next session, drop off campaign paperwork at the SOS' office, or just generally schmooze with people they last saw so many
Anyway, if any changes happen, I'll write about them tomorrow after work...or you can just read about it at Tedski's site. :)
Have a good night!
