UPDATE: Special Session

The Regular Session ended yesterday as the Governor and the Senate stalled the House Republicans' fiscally responsible plan that would lower the amount of a projected $1 billion budget shortfall. Like I've told you since day one, my number one goal this session has been to pass a budget that doesn't raise your taxes and doesn't spend 100% of our estimated revenue to prevent mid year budget cuts. I'm not going to be pressured by the media, the Senate, Democrats, or the Governor to pass another irresponsible budget that raises your taxes or spends every single penny that we 'think' we're going to have. It's time to stand up to the status quo and a crooked, bloated institution that can't seem to grasp the concept of living within its means. So, we're headed to special session.
