Harms gives Legislative session a C+

Senator John Harms of Scottsbluff gives the legislative session that adjourned today a C+. Harms says with a lot of new lawmakers on board, the floor debated got bogged down on certain issues. He says the session was more contentious than he can remember.

Harms said even though some issues were set aside for another day because of the lengthy debate, they did get the two year budget passed, with lawmakers managing to override some vetoes he thought were necessary.

Harms says Medicaid expansion and tax reform will be the big issues in the next session following interim studies this summer and fall.
