Fodder for special session

May 1, 2009
Charitably speaking, not much got done in the legislative session that ended Wednesday. Now Gov. Daniels plans to call a special session to force passage of a budget, the only bodyâ??s only legal requirement.

Should anything else be put on the table for a special session? Hereâ??s a partial list of what didnâ??t happen:

--fixing the Capital Improvement Board mess
--streamlining local government
--funding mass transit
--banning smoking statewide in public places and businesses
--expanding charter schools
--forcing utilities to supply part of their electricity from renewable resources.
