Set 'em up



The legislature's hearing from Speaker Robbie Wills and shortly I'll link his important committee leadership decisions.

Meanwhile, you might be wanting to figure where to go to watch the lawmakers guzzle free drinks and chicken nuggets.

The much improved legislative website includes a handy link to the social calendar. The wining and dining never really stop, but with the General Assembly in session, you can't keep the throwdowns straight without a scorecard. The Propane Gas Association got things underway last night with a reception for the new speaker at the Wyndham in NLR. Today, UCA (?where'd they get the money?) and the Conway Chamber have booked the Clinton Library this afternoon and for those who want to keep the buzz going, the Wholesale Beer Distributors provide further evening fun at Next Level Events.

I see no mention of a bus to Oaklawn for the track's opening day, but somehow I figure anybody who'd like to go probably won't need one of those coveted racing passes to get in.

Bon appetit!

PS -- New bill filings today include the appropriation to pay the legislative, executive and judicial branches. Read it for individual salaries (governor's pay rises to $87,352, plus house, etc., next year.)
