Budget Debate Closes Capitol


The 2010-11 State Budget was debated in the House of Representatives this week.  Due to the severe economic downturn and significantly decreased state revenues, the conversation was bleak.  After just a couple of hours of debate, the House voted cut their losses and instead of attempting to approve a balanced budget, they voted to close the doors to the Capitol for the rest of the year. The small amount of budget revenue that has come in will be diverted to a vacation fund for House members to use at will.  The Senate is not expected to oppose the move, as they are already on vacation. April Fools!!!!
