Dear Neighbor, After many late nights and more than a few (dozen) cups of coffee, the State Budget is still under construction. Just this week I voted to pass a two-month extension of the current FY budget, so that vital services are not shut down. We'll be working day in and day out to make sure we come up with a compromise that's fair, transparent and fully funds our vital services. As always, you can get daily updates by following me on Facebook and Twitter. Wishing you and yours a Happy Passover and Easter,
