Dispatch from Jones St: House Full Appropriation Meets Now

The House full appropriation committee meets today in room 643 this morning at 8:30am.  The House will be running a series of amendments.
Yesterday the House Democratic Caucus met to discuss a revenue package that would include a 1/4 cent sales tax, adjustments to personal income tax, and sin taxes. The current package raises $940 million dollars in new revenue. This does not even begin to cover the state deficit but at least it is a start.
