Most popular lawmaker continued...

The Telegraph is reporting that House bill to reinstate funding for the Homestead Relief Tax Grant program in this year's supplemental budget passed this morning 117-55.
"House Bill 143, sponsored by Warner Robins state Rep. Larry O'Neal, wouldn't force the governor to put the money back into the budget. But it sends a strong message that, if he doesn't, he's going against the will of the legislature and faces the possibility of an veto override."
Macon's intrepid Travis Fain also reports that the House adjourned before taking up the issue of assessment caps for residential and commercial property taxes.
I wrote about this for the UR yesterday, but can't link to it because it didn't make the Web. We've got to do something thing to keep the paper flying off the rack.
