About Those Dim Lights In The Madison Statehouse During Budget Votes

June 13, 2009

I wonder if I am the only one loving this stuff at 1:30 A.M.?  Give Greg Bump a pay raise for doing a great job!

About those lights

 The lights in the chamber were dimmed about an hour ago, giving the proceedings the romantic ambiance of a candle-lit dinner.

Well, not really.

Anyway, the reason the lights were lowered a bit because the air conditioning in the chamber isn’t working and it was getting uncomfortably warm for some. Thus the dimmed lights.

Tough room

 The Assembly is up to amendment 81 now. The mood is positively sedate. Maybe it’s the dim lights.

Rep. Vos decided to test the lawmakers. When amendment 80 came up, which he authored, he asked for unanimous consent to make all the members of the Assembly co-authors. Which of course the Dems wouldn’t want to do.

There was a moment of confusion before Dems got it.

“I was just checking to see if you guys are actually listening over there,” Vos said.

A couple of tired laughs is all the lawmakers could muster.
