Morning Buzz 4/18: News from the 62nd Legislature

Posted on April 18, 2011


As the Legislature returns from its four-day break, Charles Johnson wrote a Sunday-story on Gov. Brian Schweitzer’s historic veto rate. It was accompanied by a summary of bills to get his stamp thus far.

One of the things yet to be decided by lawmakers is how to fund K-12 schools, and Mike Dennison, also of the bureau, reported on ads that criticize Senate President Jim Peterson, R-Buffalo, and Sen. Ryan Zinke, R-Whitefish, about spending plans.

Dennison also took a look at one of those funding plans providing for charter schools.

The conference committee on medical marijuana reform will also begin its work today, and Associated Press writer Stephen Dockery wrote about what it’s up against.
