back to Frankfort

I will be headed down to Frankfort today for the special session, or as I like to call it, the yearly summer session.

We will be taking up the Governor's budget reduction plan, slots at the tracks, economic development incentive plan, and the Ohio-Indiana bridges plan.

I plan to update the blog regularly through the session.

Rumor is that we will be taking up the slots plan at a Licensing and Occupations committee meeting on Tuesday.

First thing to look for: All 4 bills will probably be introduced today. Will they all be given their first reading today or not? If so, then they could all be passed starting on Wednesday. If not, then the negotiating and posturing has already begun.
