House Speaker Donovan: No Special Session For Education Reform

by Categorized: Uncategorized Date:

House Speaker Christopher Donovan said he expects that the legislature will pass an education reform bill before the session ends at midnight on May 9 – squelching any need for a special session.

The reform bill is being negotiated behind the scenes as numerous bills, such as Election Day voter registration, take up numerous hours on the floor of the state House of Representatives and the Senate. But Donovan said he had not heard any serious talk of holding a special session to pass the package.

\”I haven\’t heard that,\’\’ Donovan said. \”Probaby false. False. It is not in my desire or inclination. My goal is to get an agreement done soon.\’\’

Regarding the details of the bill, Donovan said, \”People had some good discussions this weekend. We\’re still working on it. … We\’re not done. Let me put it that way. So, I can\’t tell you whether we\’re close or not. We\’re not done, but we\’re working on it, and work is important. That\’s all I can say.\’\’

    “Work is important. That’s all I can say.”

    Does Donovan even understand the things he says? Does he think about what he says before he says it? He just throws words out there and hopes that they will make sense to somebody.
