Lawmakers are getting ready to pack it up and head home as session is expected to come to a close today. If session goes past today, it will cost taxpayers about $31,000 a day to extend it. House Co-Speaker and State Representative Arnie Roblan of Coos Bay says he's excited to get back home to the Oregon Coast and then spend some time reflecting: “I'm kind of looking forward to taking a breath and looking back at what we've done. It’s very, very hectic here. I'm pleased that we are getting out of here on time, meeting our requirement one more time to get out of here by the end of June." Republicans and Democrats are saying the 30-30 split in the House was surprisingly effective. They say they were able to work together on several key issues like education reform, tax credit revisions, and a bi-partisan map for state lawmakers.
