TVW will be live at 10:30 a.m. Monday with a press conference by Senate Republicans and conservative Democrats discussing “how the state Senate will operate” during the upcoming legislative session.
There’s been a lot of speculation about which party will hold the majority in the state Senate during the 2013 session. Democrats hold a 26-23 advantage, but two fiscally conservative Democrats, Sen. Rodney Tom and Sen. Tim Sheldon, have previously joined forces with Republicans over the budget. GOP leaders have suggested the same thing could happen in the upcoming session, creating what they call a “bipartisan coalition.”
TVW will be live with the news conference and will re-air it again at 1, 5 and 7 p.m. You can also watch it live online at this link. Check back at the blog for more details.
