It wasn't all work at the Roundhouse yesterday. Former UNM Lobo and Pittsburgh Steeler superstar Robin Cole (note: his 40-foot picture is on the stadium) visited today, giving Senators a pep talk and photo op. There hasn't been this much excitement on the floor since Dog the Bounty Hunter visited a few weeks back.

Back to the business of the session:

The House will reconvene at 10 a.m.  The Senate floor agenda is not yet posted.  We'll watch for items of interest.
