Those were the words of Speaker Kelliher as the vote came in on HF3149, the omnibus tax bill. Whenever there's a last minute vote change, the Speaker announces it, and when she announced that one, applause broke out.
When Rep. Mark Buesgens votes with the majority for a bill, you know you've reached a healthy compromise. Minority Leader Seifert also rose to say he supported the bill. The vote for that bill went 129 to 3. Very kumbaya, over in the House.
There House is sounding notes like they're about ready to close this thing down. Majority Leader Sertich is thanking the staff.
"It takes a lot of people to make us look good[...]they're here before we get here and have to clean up when we're done," he said.
Cover the clocks?
