CIB Bailout May Be Logrolled In State Budget
I wrote on this blog on February 16, 2009 about a possible plan to stick a bailout for the CIB in the state budget bill, thereby allowing lawmakers to avoid a final up or down vote on the issue alone. I based that observation on an e-mail I received from my own state legislator, Rep. John Day, saying that he didn't support the bailout but that he might have to vote for it if it becomes part of the state budget. Well, today WTHR's Kevin Rader says that might well happen as lawmakers scramble to finish up their work by midnight tonight. "The word is that CIB could very well end up in the budget," writes Rader on his blog. If that happens, it once again confirms that Indiana is the absolute worst legislature in the country.
