Same old, same old at the legislature

  • ANOTHER TERM: For Speaker Jeremy Gillam
The legislature officially adjourned today, getting per diem payments without having to do any significant work. As expected, Rep. Jeremy Gillam was tapped to serve another term as House speaker beginning in 2017. Sen. Jonathan Dismang will be back as Senate president pro tempore.

Don't get too comfortable. The lawmakers will be back claiming per diem in 10 days for a special session on highway spending and perhaps other odds and ends.
