Well, hey there MACo Folks! Last week I was in Washington, D.C., so you received a relatively short update, sweetened with a poem about Montana’s legislative process (which hopefully distracted from the fact that you received nothing of real substance…not that you ever really do—I’m here to entertain during the “dark times”).
Tomorrow is Presidents’ Day. (Happiest B-day wishes to both George and Abe—in my over-caffeinated, under-slept totally rational mind, we’re on a first name basis.) Be sure to watch the Joint Floor Session at 1 p.m. for “Formal Address Day,” where instead of Second and Third Readings of bills, we’ll be receiving updates from our Congressional Delegation and Montana Tribal Nations Chairman. Yes, it’s another holiday. And as you’ve learned by now, the Legislature does not sleep on holidays, so you don’t get to either. Sorry.
ALSO, tomorrow is the first day of MACo’s Midwinter Conference. So MACo doesn’t let you sleep on holidays either. Sorry. Again.
Unfortunately, the storm of the century is also scheduled for this week, starting today…and ending Wednesday…at 11 p.m. (I’m just “Little Miss Jolly Good News” over here.)
So, while I daydream about snowshoeing instead of legislative updating, grab the bevvy of your choice and a big ol’ snack, cause you’re in for a long-winded wild ride filled with excitement, drama, and of course, tears. So. Many. Tears. (It’s not actually exciting nor dramatic…maybe just kinda sad…you decide.)
