CAPITOL VIEW

Don’t get me wrong. I still believe in the one-house legislature. I am, however, troubled  when the Executive Branch tries to act like the second house. The theme of this year’s Legislature seems to be drafting bills that will survive a filibuster AND a potential gubernatorial veto. That means a bill has to garner at least 33 “yes” votes to support a cloture motion (to cease debate) or to override a potential veto from the newgovernor
