A Deal!

Looks like we can all go home tomorrow.  All the details to follow, but they worked out the mining thing, and the bank fees plus education cuts everyone could live with.

Faces beaming in the halls.

And, amazingly, the Senate is in session right now discussing Water.

Update (9:44 p.m.):  Per Ralston, on Channel 3 just now, education cuts = 6.9%.  So, less than the governor’s 10% but more than the 5% for which the Democrats hoped.

And gaming, apparently, got off scot-free.  This time.
