We Are Now Adjourned. It was a rough last 47 minutes. The Senate and House got the last tax proposal to the Governor. It wasn't without a lot of verbal wrestling and parliamentary wrangling, but the bill prevailed. It's on its way to the Governor where it will meet an almost certain (I've got a better chance of being the next commencement speaker at Notre Dame than that bill has a chance of being signed) veto.

The mandatory teacher health insurance conference committee did not come up. Look for Education Minnesota to lobby the Governor all summer and fall to sign that bill. I don't know if it will make any difference or not.

So, unless there's a special session, I won't be haunting these halls on a daily basis until Thursday, February 4, 2010.
