Busy day of potential doucebaggery under both domes today.
Today was "crossover" day in the General Assembly, the designated last day to introduce new legislation for the session (conveniently scheduled on the same day as the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner Democratic fundraiser). Sonny's "Hope Chest" amendment failed to pass. A bill allowing pharmacists to refuse to fill "morning-after" pill prescriptions stalled. A bill passed the House that will allow physician's assistants to fill prescriptions in certain emergencies. The Senate created a "Newborn Umbilical Cord Blood Commission," which I suppose has something to do with stem cell research.
Meanwhile up in Washington, the Senate continues to work on the Budget Resolution, which in its current form opens ANWAR for drilling and assumes the 2001 and 2003 tax cuts will be continued at least through 2011. Also, Feingold introduced the Censure Resolution against Bush for the wiretapping fiasco.
Now, out of all of that, surely some of you will have comments; go for it.
