Monday should be another fascinating day at the legislative race track. House leadership has to decide whether they want to pass the bill, or do they want to resolutely kill it. They have the votes to do either. But, if they are not decisive, SJR 1 will spin out on the slick House track tantalizingly close to the finish line and we will be back for a Fourth Called Session.
UPDATE 8/2:Thank you for the blog entry on the transportation bill. As you can imagine Sen. Nichols is hopeful this thing can get done next week. I did want to mention one thing I noticed in your report. The House committee passed HJR 1 out yesterday, not SJR 1. Unfortunately that means if it passes on Monday we will have to pass it through our process (which should not be an issue) in the Senate. I am unaware of a House rule that would allow Pickett to swap out the HJR for the SJR unless Phillips reconvenes his committee and votes out the SJR.
