JUST AN IDEA: Move the Legislative Session: right now we start in January, We don't get the economic data we need for the budget until the beginning of March, so leaving about a week to really hammer out budget details. This year in particular, when legislators decided to wait until Veto Day to finalize the budget, demonstrates the need for a later session. Change the Constitution to move the start date to first Tuesday in February, or change the rules to spread the session out, maybe meet for three-day weeks in January, then move days to March for budget. We might also need to change referral rules to give citizens more time to refer items passed in late March.
