As has been previously mentioned, the Senate overrode the Governor’s veto.
What a bunch of pansies. They chose the most self-serving of bills to override the Governor’s veto.
Last year, they went through much ballyhooed kabuki dancing over legislation to require greater transparency in the Executive Branch — I’m talking about Jill Chambers’ legislation. The House and Senate both passed the bill (I think unanimously). The Governor vetoed it.
What do the Senators do? They ignore the strong message an override on that veto would send and instead decide to vote on the *most* self-serving piece of legislation. They want their own budget office.
That’s not leadership by the Senate. That craptacularly self-serving.
