Greetings!! We have now completed our second week of this fiscal deadlock/ gridlock session. (I hope it doesn’t become a marathon!) I am reminded of an old song that says “You can bet as sure as you live! Something’s got to give!” I just hope reason isn’t the biggest loser in this stalemate over the Private Option. For two weeks every day has been “Same song; second verse; a little bit louder, a little bit worse!” I hope the end to gridlock is in sight!
They expect to finish the project, including striping new lines, this week.

The third annual fiscal session in Arkansas history began on February 10, 2014, and, even though activities for the first day (Monday) were mostly ceremonial, our job to work/ rework/ balance Arkansas’ $5 billion budget began. You may recall that the vote of the people created this special session to study and address fiscal matters only every second year and we are trying to limit the session to these same fiscal matters only. One hundred forty-nine (149) appropriation bills had been filed in the House as of the first day of the session, but there are “boo coodles” to come.
