Print More

It seems our fair state legislators have had just about enough of deadlines — whether they be arbitrary, self-imposed or, like, totally for real.

Sure, they can pass monumental raises for themselves in a flash, but assemble a balanced spending plan in time for the new fiscal year? Nope — that notion’s a dud. Less than sparkly revenues and quickly rising uncertainty in D.C., indeed, have rained on the annual budget season parade.

Hitch wonders if the grand finale will be worth the wait.
