"All Republican Senators except me voted for [SB 148]." "While I do not believe individuals should be mandated to purchase health insurance, the idea of telling the Attorney General what he should or should not do violates principles underlying the fundamental concept of having three separate but equal branches of government."

"One tax created in the last budget is going away. That is the 10 percent tax on gambling winnings."

"The bill to exempt the Unity school district from the moratorium on school building aid has had unanimous votes of support in the Senate Finance and the Senate Education Committees."

"...level funding for education may be the best anyone could expect." "...the new funding plan was passed on a voice vote."
