Nope, there’s no budget deal yet, and the sides still basically seem to be right where they were last week.
Will they meet again before another week passes? Does it even matter any more?
Anyway, while we wait for the budget crisis to be resolved, both Democrats and Republicans are touring the state to whip up support for their positions. Brian Lockhart has this to say about the GOP leadership hitting the road:
I like the idea of Sen. Minority Leader John McKinney, R-Fairfield and House Minority Leader Lawrence Cafero, R-Norwalk traveling the state together. It’s kind of like “Planes, Trains and Automobiles” with McKinney as Steve Martin and Cafero as John Candy.
That made my morning.
