Little fiddled with a tape recorder that a conference committee had left on the table, as the senators filed in, and assured Senate President Pro Tem Bob Geddes that he’d unplugged it every which way he could find. Geddes took a seat right in front of the tape recorder, grinned and ate a piece of candy. Other senators noticed me taking a photo, and chuckled about how that portion of the caucus meeting apparently was open. The door soon closed, though.
Meanwhile, the House majority also is planning to retreat behind closed doors for a caucus meeting.
