3 Day Weekend!

Well, at least for most lawmakers. There are no floor sessions in the House or Senate today. This is the typical schedule for sessions. They need an extra day to catch up on printing all the bills that are filed in the first few days.

If they pass that measure to put a limit on the number of bills a legislator can introduce, maybe they won't have to take the first Friday off next session. (SCR 1 is co-sponsored by Sen. Peter Wirth, D-Santa Fe and Rep.Larry LarraƱaga, R-Albuquerque -- one of the few pieces of Legislation this session not sponsored by Sen. Tim Keller, D-Albuquerque.)

So it's a good day to catch up on your reading.

You can see the story I did with the help of Kate Nash on the testimony of whistle-blower Frank Foy at the Senate Judiciary Committee HERE.

And you can see the story I did about the Working Families Caucus and various tax proposals HERE.
