I heard during the votes this afternoon that Senators Jenna Haggar Netherton and Deb Peters and Representatives Craig Tieszen and Lynne DiSanto are excused from today’s special session on nonmeandered waters.
Funny—in her Facebook profile photo updated sometime before 4 p.m. Mountain today, Rep. DiSanto doesn’t look sick:
Maybe someone should meander over to Rep. DiSanto’s house and see if she remembers she had work today.
By the way, in DiSanto’s absence, the House and Senate have both approved versions of HB 1001, but the Senate amended the House’s sunset date from 2021 to 2018, and sponsor Rep. Lee Qualm wanted that sent to conference committee. As of 6 p.m. Central, that committee is arm-wrestling over which Legislature gets the hot potato. Rep. DiSanto could still make the conference committee vote, if she gets the lead out.
