Light Posting Week Open Forum

Apart from the year in review post and my predictions (and yours) for the upcoming year, due tomorrow, this is a very light posting week. Regular posting will resume next week, but here’s what’s going on.

Jim Himes is setting up his staff, including Jason Cole, who used to work for Kansas Rep. Dennis Moore, as chief of staff. Not mentioned in the article is that Cole has been, according to this, a lobbyist for UBS for the past two years or so. Hm.

The CRRA landfill in Hartford officially closes tomorrow.

No special session on Friday. Take a look, however, at legislation going into effect on January 1.

What else is going on?
