    You are so right. I think it was two years ago when, at the 11th hour, the legislature sprung that $100 million prison cost overrun on us. It was some big surprise to them that their swamp site was going to cost them extra. Duh.

    I always thought the move was calculated to pull one over on us. Someone figured this was the best timing for such a move.

    I don't trust them. It's either failure to plan or playing us for fools. Neither option appeals to me.

    I would love a prediction of what LAW/FEE, etc will happen in the final minutes that no one really wants but will be mandated for us and most of us weren’t aware it was hiding in committee. This happens EVERY year and one of the reason’s we don’t trust those who supposedly represent the people but only do these kinds of laws that benefit themselves.

    As Gustave le Bon explained in 1895, legislative bodies increase the cost of government with their plans and diminish our freedoms in the process.

    The end of the session can't come soon enough for me.

    Besides dismantling the propositions, the legislature has been fairly well behaved this year. I think most people are fed up with pollution and there’s some political will to change it.
