It’s worth ten bucks

Chuck Oxley, Associated Press reporter, said one of the toughest moments of the legislative session for him came when he had to pay Senate Majority Leader Bart Davis $10, because he’d lost his bet. When the Senate amended its internal rules earlier this session to allow closed committee meetings at any time, for any reason, Davis said the rule wouldn’t be abused and there probably wouldn’t be any closed meetings this session – and Oxley bet him there would.

However, Oxley said, “I told him if it costs me 10 bucks a session to keep you from closing meetings, I’ll gladly give it to you.”
