  • Budget cycle
    • Capital coming to Capital SubComm - Weds, Mar 31
    • Joint Budget SubComm - TBD
    • FinComm hearings in Apr (4/27-28-29, 5/4)

Links to the key topics covered here are included in the show notes. The recording runs about 41 minutes, so let’s listen to my conversation with Jamie and Anne Marie.
