FLOOR-A-PALOOZA ALERT: Another storm cloud on the horizon
Posted at 11:08 AM on April 3, 2008 by Michael Marchio
Today, the House and Senate are both supposed to take up the omnibus finance bills. I talked to intrepid MPR reporter Tom Scheck, and he said be ready for the kitchen sink to be thrown in, because practically everything is germane to a finance bill. So that means, you guessed it, floor-a-palooza! We did one for the Senate yesterday, but it seemed like lawmakers were tired out by the time they finally got to the bonding bill, because only four spoke up. Here's the press conference from after the session. Sen. Langseth has probably forgotten more about bonding than anyone else at the Capitol has ever known. It's pretty funny, you should check it out.
So today we'll do a floor-a-palooza for the House. Some are expecting this to go late - very late - but the Commish will be blogging throughout the day, so keep checking back for the skinny.
