As lawmakers stand around waiting for something to happen - a new, corrected version of a bill, a delayed committee meeting, etc. - Rep. Tom Loertscher, R-Iona, recalled a favorite line from former state lawmaker Dane Watkins: "All we know is what we tell each other." Today's JFAC meeting is now "tentatively" scheduled for 3 p.m. Ways & Means was supposed to meet half an hour ago, but hasn't yet. The Senate Education Committee has scheduled at 2:45 p.m. meeting on two bills, HB 374 on funding for virtual education, and HB 211, on higher education residency requirements.
