A wrap up of a session that came unwrapped
A wrap up of a session that came unwrapped

...Let me be more specific. This administration hung its hat on fixing the pension problem. Currently, the count is 0 - 2. It could not be fixed in a failed Special Session. [0-1] It did not get fixed in a Regular Session [0-2], even though a pension bill did pass. Now we have been put on notice that the Governor will call us back to the batter's box for yet another swing at fixing the pension in a Special Session before the beginning of July. If this is accomplished, no doubt it will be the key campaign garland he wears around his neck in November's General Election bid. If not, speaking baseball, "Governor, you're Ooouuuttt!"
