Rode Hard and Put Up Wet

Thanks to Rep. Monty Davenport for this installment of a worn out catch phrase for my title. But that's kind of the way everybody feels as today was the deadline for filing bills. More so for the staff and the folks in Legislative Research. Even though the number of filed bills are down from previous sessions, log-jams are pretty evident in the A committees. Still to be heard from is the final lottery bill, along with the grocery tax cut and lord knows what else lurks in the mind of this legislative body. I could certainly see a castle doctrine in my future. By the way, filing fewer bills is a good thing in my mind. The real work starts now.
