Far too often the General Assembly waits until the last hours of the session to vote on important budget items and other legislation. This leads to a lack of transparency and mistrust in government. Law making requires deliberation and study. I would propose legislation to set a time specific schedule for hearings and debate in order to prevent the "hurry up" nature of the current budget process. Too much important legislation is sent to the Governor's desk after the General Assembly has recessed, making it nearly impossible to override a veto.
