Legislature to Vote on Budget Today

Today, the Legislature will vote on a budget built on one time non-recurring monies,  and loaded with fees and taxes (although some Republicans are now calling them “surcharges” to avoid the T word).  With Democrats threatening to vote a big no, and even some Republicans wavering, it looks like the Legislature’s vote on the budget will be interesting, but likely to pass. 

With all those fees and taxes, wonder where all those Grover Norquist “no new taxes” pledge Republicans are?
