I am working on the template of this blog today in order to chase down some problems that have developed with my template and widgets.

Here is a copy of the proposed budget that will be presented to the budget committee today:

This is something I used to do in previous years, but was not able to do it for the past eighteen months or so because of my coverage of local meetings and limited resources. 

I now have sufficient resources to begin posting the legislative calendars and following the meetings of the state legislature thanks to the generous donations of members of the community by check and by their contributions to my Patreon campaign. Please consider donating at least a dollar a month to allow me to continue doing what I do and to build up resources to have a better website.
