SINE DIE ... for a few days

The session is over. The Senate went down debating the treatment-not-incarceration bill (HB178).

Yes, we have no budget.

So, Gov. Bill Richardson says he'll call a special session on Wednesday.

It'll be all budget, he said. No domestic partnership ("We don't have the votes," the governor said).

But he might put an ethics commission bill on the call.

Oh boy ...

As far as the budget goes, House Speaker Ben Lujan said they were at the one yard line but just couldn't complete the pass for the touchdown.
