Working hard, Capitol style

Wonder how hard they're working in the state House?

Well watching PCN today you would have seen Mary Wilson of the Supremes being greeted and wishing the legislators some love.

They sent the budget to a conference committee, meaning they won't have to debate it any further and legislative leaders will decide.

Essentially that's what happens every year anyway. This year stands out because here we are closing in on late July with no budget.

You think they're angry at Rockview, wait a few days. Anger will be rising throughout the state, led by state workers who won't be paid.

How busy are they? Well Rep. Mike Hanna was too busy to respond yesterday for our story on Rockview land. But his office did celebrate passage of his resolution declaring September American Kennel Club Month.

Busy as ever, apparently. Go figure.
