Last night, negotiations broke down again between the House and Senate on the cigarette tax. The latest House offer was 75 total cents on the cigarette tax (57-cent increase). The Senate held at 64 total cents (46-cent increase).
Today was suppose to be the day we recessed for a month. However, the lack of a cigarette tax compromise, coupled with the fact that the traditional last-day tomato plants placed on everyone's desk, are not promising signs that today is the last day.
