Justices prevail

Posted By on Thu, Mar 22, 2007 at 12:19 PM

Five of the seven Supreme Court justices turned out at the Joint Budget Personnel Subcommittee this morning to take questions on the court's budget request. This was the third try today and the budget ultimately was approved as requested, with no cuts. You'll recall that Rep. Jim Medley opened the negotiating last week when Chief Justice Jim Hannah appeared by proposing to cut up to 17 job slots.

Things were more cordial today, but legislators got in a few licks, we hear, about receiving court mandates close to legislative sessions. To which Hannah essentially replied that the court gets them when it gets them. There was some further discussion, too, about leave time and justices offered explanations.

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
