Posted on April 7, 2011


The landscape of K-12 funding and medical marijuana reform changed dramatically yesterday, but neither is any closer to a resolution. Mike Dennison, of the Lee State Bureau, reported on the two new funding plans produced by Senate and House committees Wednesday.

And Charles Johnson, of the bureau, wrote about a House committee tightening down regulations in the lone surviving medical pot reform bill despite objections and the promise of many amendments to come on the floor.

Dennison also wrote about the lagging rates paid to those who take care of the disabled.

And Johnson produced a second story on a measure to let voters decide if they want a refund if tax collections exceed a set mark.

Matt Gouras, of the Associated Press, reported on a GOP move to change the makeup of the Montana Supreme Court.

Here is today’s Senate agenda.

And here are today’s House agendas: 10:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.
