HB 3 and 4 Pass

It only took 5 hours or so but the legislature officially decided to tax businesses. HB 3 passed 80-69.

HB 4 passed (77-65) much more quickly. To start the debate on HB 5 (the increase tax on tabacco products) Rep Hamric has been surrounded by the women of the house with cigars. It's good to see they are still cracking themselves up at 11 p.m., because I am not amused. Well, not that amused. Ok, it is a little amusing, but only cause I am smoking my last pack of smokes before the new tax.

Charlie and Eileen are live-blogging and if it weren't for these two, tonights proceedings would be tragic and not funny.

If you are having a hard time sleeping or just a huge wonk like me, here is the video.
