Gov to Sign Budget Today

There wasn't much doubt that Gov. Susana Martinez would sign House Bill 2, the state budget.

But in case anyone was worried, her office announced a few minutes ago that she would indeed sign it 1 p.m. today at Puesta del Sol Elementary School in Rio Rancho after reading Green Eggs and Ham to kindergartners there.

I'm not making that up.

The question now is what green eggs and pork  in the bill will she line-item veto.

UPDATE: 1:02 pm A previous version of this post placed Puesta del Sol Elementary in Albuquerque. It's Rio Rancho. My deepest apologies to the good citizens of RioRancho and the wonderful children of Puesta del Sol.
