[Legislative Afterglow] The Republican majority at the House of Representatives just sent us its official news release outlining the "significant progress" of the 2008 legislative session. It reads, in part:
“It was one of the calmer and more productive sessions I’ve been able to lead,” said [House Speaker Greg] Curtis. “I’m especially heartened by our continued progress improving education funding."
But what's this? Looks like the speaker's staff hit the "send" button a bit prematurely, before double-checking final info. with the boss.
"During my time as speaker," Curtis said, "I’ve seen an unprecedented increase of X billion in education funding, with this year continuing that trend.”
