At the Capitol

Posted By on Mon, Mar 9, 2009 at 3:09 PM

I don't know much. The flurry of last-day bill filings must have plugged up the legislative website. It has been cranky.

John Williams reports: Sen. Ruth Whitaker was taken to the hospital after complaining of dizziness. She appeared alert as she left, senators said. The Senate passed Sen. Steve Faris' ethics bill to add a broad range of new rules guiding political work during regular office hours by public employes and spending and reporting by PACS and independent political committees. On the surface, sounds like good government, but it hasn't had deep exposition just yet. What will Robbie's committee do with it?
