Melting in the Heat for the Sake of Democracy

2009 July 20 - Bonnie

Down here in Tucson, we're dealing with 100 degree plus temperatures and the remaining work from the legislatures across the country who were exceptionally busy this spring.  Having posted well over 500 votes, we had our work cut out for us.  Fortunately, we've had some exceptionally good interns this summer to help out, including some who I anticipate will be with us in future semesters.  Perhaps what is most time consuming for us are the budgets that we've been working on, especially with some states passing their biennial budgets this year.  However, we've been able to make some headway.  I just recently posted the Colorado budget (SB 259) on the website and John finished writing one for Alaska.  Much more to come!
