With the full House meeting most of the day to debate and vote on revenue-raising measures, tension is abundant.
The House money committees got an early start, and despite Appropriations chairman Cameron Henry’s comment Wednesday, that he was “not really in a rush to deal with the Senate just yet.”
The committee began with the Senate measure to tap another $128-million from the Rainy Day fund.
“We pretty much have to do it,” Henry said, clearly displeased.
Appropriations also agreed to the bill to use the first $200-million coming from BP.
