"There's not much left"

While waiting for the House to clear its omnibus bills, the Senate has been taking up General Orders, bills that have been hanging around waiting for passage, racking up big points for a few teams that adjusted their rosters to be Senate-heavy. But Sen. Larry Pogemiller just announced the schedule for tomorrow and said "there's no much left" for the Senate on the list of General Orders, which means there's not many points the Senate is going to be able to deliver in the near future.
Tomorrow the Senate will take up the bonding bill, and then get the House's omnibus tax bills -- zippo point-getters in the MFL.
Adjust your rosters accordingly in this week's free agent draft.
This afternoon the House is taking up SF238, the smoking ban bill(that's a Votetracker link). If you'd like to watch on House TV, click here. Poor Tom Huntley. All that work, and the points are going to go to the Senate sponsors.
"Subd. 7. Certain cafe. Sections 144.414 to 144.417 do not prohibit smoking in
1.5any cafe that is located off Interstate Highway 94 in a town with a population under 500, a
1.6water tower with a smiley face on it, and a name beginning with an F and ending in a T."
This was one of the myriad amendments for the house Freedom to Breathe bill. This was authored by Dean Urdahl from Grove City.
Is there any wonder the House goes forever on every darned bill? Good grief!

So if they paint out the smiley face, they can no longer smoke?
And a big smiley face from me to you, Sen. Higgins, for your 2567 points this season!
