From my email inbox comes a statement from Democratic State Rep. Chris Sinicki on the 2013-2015 biennial budget. “Yesterday, Assembly Speaker Robin Vos attempted to usher a hurried vote on the state budget, claiming Republican changes were simply clauses in a “technical (i.e., non-substantive) amendment”.
