Legislature packs up VOTE NOW

Posted By on Thu, Apr 9, 2009 at 11:32 AM

The House has adjourned. I hope for a report soon on the Senate's final business, electing a president pro tem for 2011.

UPDATE: Sen. Paul Bookout of Jonesboro was elected pro-tem. It was a first ballot victory. So much for the prediction I got from one interested party yesterday that a runoff might be required. Votes are not revealed. It was a three-way race because Percy Malone dropped out before the vote, leaving Mary Anne Salmon and Ruth Whitaker in the race with Bookout.

SPECIAL SURVEY:

How about it. What were the highlights and lowlights of the legislative session for you? So that you don't have to be registered to comment, I've set up an open-ended survey where you can post your nominations. Click the link here and comment.

And to see the results, click this link. (Note: There's typically a delay between posting answers and their reaching the survey server for viewing.)
