The Roaring Silence. I'm sitting here in Room 112 of the Capitol waiting patiently for the E-12 conference committee to reconvene. They met for a brief time at 2 PM, but had to recess before any business was completed due to budget negotiations between the Legislature and the Governor and bills that had come up on the House floor. It's hard to tell when they will be back, but rest assured I will let you know what is happening.
No decision has been made by the House on whether or not to concur with the Senate amendment to HF 464 (the mandatory--optional thanks to the Senate--statewide health insurance pool). Word in the halls make it sound like it will be going to conference committee. Stay tuned.
