So if it takes that long to get them printed, how the heck did anyone on the House floor know what they were voting on? Did anyone have time to read? And did anyone care?
Brian McClung, Gov. Tim Pawlenty's spokesman, told the Capitol press corps today that Pawlenty has so far received only the Economic Development budget bill. He got it on Tuesday and must sign or veto it by midnight Friday.
The word is that the backlog from Monday night is pretty thick at the Office of the Revisor of Statutes, which must draft bills and prepare them to present to the Governor's office, and it's taking a while to sort out.
