    Mike Kehoe's Capitol Report
    I am told that the odds of picking a perfect bracket in the NCAA Basketball Tournament are, at best, somewhere in the neighborhood of 1 in 128 billion. As I write this on Friday, I can say with complete certainty that I will not defy these odds with my bracket. March brings about many exciting events, not the least of which is this tournament, and also marks the midway point of the legislative session.

    David Wood's Capitol Report
    The budget is finally voted out of committee and will be coming to the House floor after Spring break. The final changes in committee took nearly 12 hours, and I left the building at 12:40 a.m. Wednesday. That makes for a very short night because I had to be back in a different committee at 8:30 the next morning. We had very long sessions this week because we are trying to get as much done before Spring break as possible. The debates this week have been on very tough issues and when everyone is tired the passion comes out even more than usual. That is why the break in the middle is a very good idea.
