Education tax credit: Not dead yet 

A reader writes me to let me know that the House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by state Representative and CD6 Congressional candidate Jim Knoblach, has managed to get HF 1054 into the House tax bill. HF 1054 is the education tax credit that state Senator Ed Borg Steve Kelley killed off in the Senate last week. Here's the record in the House Journal where it has been added. The bill is on the fiscal calendar for today. The tax bill is HF 785.

Of course, 'round these parts the local newspaper is reporting that Mayor Ellenbecker didn't get his ransom. And it appears he thinks it's Knoblach's fault. Of course, Ellenbecker wouldn't want to get involved in partisan politics, would he?
