War Zone / Work Zone

Tomorrow’s papers may make it sound like a bar fight is on here at the Capitol.

There are certainly instances where dissimilar modes of research and operation have led to different opinions as to the best policy direction for the state.

If there is indelible anger, however, it is probably one-sided. The Senate Majority believes a $100 million tax cut is about right if we still want to fund other state needs. That shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone. We’re not likely to shift opinion based on anything less than good math and sound reasoning.

Some degree of tension is par for the course at the end of a legislative session.

The process is effective. Things tend to work out.

Here’s tonight’s AP story, via kutv.com.

Thank goodness for your blog, it is accurate reporting. Sometimes you wonder if you and a reporter attended the same meeting.
