House Bill 196

I am extremely disappointed to report that HB 196, defensible space tax credit, did not pass the House. Something to do with the language. And I thought they all spoke fluent english, silly me. It’s not quite dead yet. With any luck it will return during the special session planned for this summer to address another unresolved issue, health care reform. All wasn’t lost though, our legislators did, however, agree on a few things. They gave us the Golden Retriever as the state dog and brought back the firing squad. Now we all can sleep better at night.
