Keep calm and negotiate on

* A text from a longtime buddy…
I jokingly said there could be 20.
But it’s something to keep in mind as we move through this week. I warned you yesterday that there will be problems. The main thing we need now is for the people in charge to keep their cool. No “emotional” veto threats from the governor. No embarrassingly over the top political gamesmanship by the House Speaker.
Above all, they need to commit to remaining on the playing field.
No Republicans voted for the bill, but two (Reps. David Harris and Brian Stewart) voted “Present” and urged continued negotiations.
