We get letters

I just don't have time to check.

But I'll pass along an interesting tip that suggests funny business will be underway tomorrow in the special language subcommittee of Joint Budget. This is where, you may recall, funny business was put in motion that ultimately brought down Nick Wilson (but not necessarily all those who had a hand in the funny business).

Here's the agenda:

A close reader of legislation claims:

The first few are competing raids on the State Board of Collection Agency balances.

Another takes $3 million from Land Commissioner balances and doles it out to selected colleges.

I don't know. But I'll tell you this: Everyone can read. In time, this stuff gets figured out. I think it's better to seek money for worthy recipients straight up than by artifice.
