Lawmakers will continue to meet tomorrow, going past their goal of ending February 29th. State Representative Gene Whisnant of Sunriver says he says its tough to get everything accomplished in such a short time frame. "This short session, which I opposed, annual session. But if we're going to have annual sessions, 35 days is not enough time to adequately address difficult policy issues. I am going to propose for next session that there be no individual bills, just Committee bills, because a lot of bills that were introduced were for political campaigns and not for helping Oregonians.” Whisnant says he likes the bi-partisan budget plan lawmakers came up with. He's especially glad they kept an emergency fund intact to help weather another economic storm in Oregon.
