A quiet Monday on campus

As you've heard, the Governor has called for a special session to begin tomorrow.

Legislators head home Friday to take a breather before hunkering back down to finish the 2011-13 operating budget and passing the dozens of bills required to implement the budget.

As outlined in the Governor's special session proclamation, the Legislature also needs to approve a new capital budget and will likely continue discussion on workers comp, higher education, and some transportation-related bills.

As for today, most of the people on campus are staff taking advantage of the business-casual atmosphere while members phone in from their districts. Tomorrow, it's back to suits, ties and marathon meetings. We'll keep you posted.
