Coping with annual legislative sessions

Posted By on Mon, Nov 10, 2008 at 9:24 AM

Under the Dome floats an interesting idea on coping with the new constitutional mandate of annual legislative sesions, the one in even years limited to budget matters. The idea is that lawmakers would continue to budget for two years, but appropriate only for one, thus meeting the constitutional mandate. But the even-year session could be mostly a pro forma ratification of appropriations pegged to the earlier budget.

There would be untold numbers of special pleaders, of course.
