Re: “Governor directs Health Department to resume issuing birth certificates under revised procedures


FYI, I asked ADH about the issue you described. I'm trying to get some clarity on the general process, but they also volunteered to connect you directly with a Vital Records supervisor to guide you through the process. Let me know if you would like to pass along your contact information to them (my email is davidramsey at arktimes dot com).

Re: “Senate Democrats plan another all-nighter, this time to protest Sessions

I think the idea is just to make a point. They know they can't block Sessions. They're doing this as a public protest. It's grandstanding...but my sense is that Democratic base voters want this kind of maximal resistance and want to see these arguments made in a high-profile, public way.

Re: “Governor tells state agencies cuts could be coming with budget shortfall

The surplus is revenues above forecast. If they are below forecast, there is no surplus.

"In the hole" is a reference to the governor's surplus projections, which he relies upon for his highway plan. It's also the case, obviously, that they are going to have to make corresponding budget cuts if they remain below forecast.

Re: “Stonewall Democrats: Rapert resolution "disrespectful and discriminatory" and "waste of time"

Jake, his resolution wouldn't even be codified!

Re: “Same-sex marriage birth certificate case: "something more sinister is afoot"

The word "can" was just my shorthand, Joe. The weasel words you describe are not in the law. The law says the "husband SHALL be entered on the certificate as the father of the child." This presumptive action will take place unless 1) paternity is determined otherwise by a court or 2) mom, husband, AND biological father all sign an affidavit that husband is not the father.

I've changed the word "can" to "is" in my post to be clearer.
