Be in your seats, children

Posted By on Thu, Mar 24, 2011 at 9:21 AM

Special notice for the five Republicans on the eight-member Senate Transportation Committee.

Sen. Linda Chesterfield, the chair, has called a committee meeting immediately after adjournment. The House bill to refer to voters a 5-cent increase in the tax on diesel to back highway bonds is on the agenda.

Absences require a doctor's excuse (Sen. Irvin, an independent physician, not your husband or Dr. Bledsoe), will be required). Homework-eating dog excuses are frowned upon. Water breaks after a quorum is declared are ill-advised. Vote or shut up.
