The Legislative session has come to an end with Governor Holden saying he’s pleased that fifteen of eighteen of his initiatives were passed. He’s happy that such initiatives as school report cards, women’s health, and .08 drunk driving legislation passed. But’s he’s disappointed with the failure of transportation and a prescription drug plan for senior citizens to get through the Legislature. The lack of success on the prescription drug plan has prompted the Governor to call a special session of the Legislature this fall. He plans to call it into special session concurrently with the veto session to deal with the prescription drug cost relief plan. He is not ruling out having the House and Senate deal with other issues at that time.
