Fiscal session




That seems the universal takeaway on the first "fiscal session" of the legislature.

Stephens. Andrew DeMillo. D-G (sub. reqd.)

I do know that -- in a shuffle to move gas revenue to road work -- the administration overlooked also moving some money to beef up the state's woeful environmental regulation of that industry. I'm also running down a tip on a significant chunk of money quietly moved into an energy project that some might find dubious.

It's true that the annual session took away built-in pay raises for elected officials set out in 2009 that would have automatically been taken off the top absent this year's required new appropriations and the attendant pay freeze that was imposed.
