Several lawmakers are missing the special session.
OK, they may not be “missing” it. But they’re not here, for various family- and business-related reasons.
A third of Senate Republicans were gone Tuesday, some potentially for the whole session. Of course, given that Democrats have a 31-18 edge anyway, and have overturned requirements for a supermajority to pass taxes, their absences may not be worrisome for the minority party.
