Less than 10 Hours to Go. There's bound to be a mad rush on the floors of the House and Senate in the next few hours, but work is being done in another conference committee--HF 1226--that will carry the bonding bill to the floor of both houses. HF 1226 originally dealt with some miscellaneous tax provisions, but as we have already witnessed today (and I pointed out in Friday's entry), there are vehicles on the lot and all they need is a driver and some passengers. The pension bill is scheduled to be voted on later today and it is expected that everyone wants to see that passed. But that is yet to come. Time for another musical interlude that sums up a lot of people's feelings about today.
