    I can't believe an amendment tried to require Tom Benson to re-sign Drew Brees to a five-year deal in order to receive funding for the Hornets lease agreement. I almost wanted it to pass for its sheer ludicrousness.

    And that was after the same guy (Rep. Sam Jones, D-Franklin) tried to tack on an amendment to use the bill to reinstate the tolls on the Crescent City Connection.

    Is that guy serious? What a hack!

    Up next... it goes to the State Senate for final approval.

    as I said before... with this legislature... whatever Gov. Jindal wants... Gov. Jindal more than likely gets

    and we know Gov. Jindal's in... it'll pass

    Also consider this wasn't the only bill required to be passed. The legislature must pass the actual full lease agreement. Even if the Senate passes this one today, there is still more legal legislative hurdles to overcome. I would fully expect them to pass, but it's not guaranteed as this bill proved.

    I didn't do the search to see if it's bill or something else yet. It may already be out there. I've been occupied out of town.

    I'd gladly listen to that woman sing "Yankee Doodle Dandy" all day if it meant I could keep my eyes on her body without fear of retribution.

    all bills are assigned to a committee, if the committee thinks it's worth voting on it the full house or senate will vote on it, in this case the senate. The house already did this part of the process.
