The fear of a Christmas tree

The state budget is hung up again. The key sticking point is guess what? The 17 million dollar fish pond. Kent and one other rep (Reportedly Dale Ford) are in lock down on getting it.

The big problem besides it being a pork project is many other legislators have said that if Kent gets his piece of pork then they are going to go after some pork of their own. If that happens, Katie bar the door. It will be a free for all. The limits on raiding the reserve funds will be shot to pieces. Other conservative legislators have said they they were for the senate plan will bail out on voting for the budget with the new pork.

If that happens the budget will end up looking like a Christmas tree with all the projects tacked onto it.
