House sets special session on budget shortfall for Dec. 19. Who’ll play Santa/Grinch?

“It’s beginning to look a lot like” a special legislative session to deal with the current $365 million to $417 million shortfall in the current budget, depending on whose numbers you’re using. So lame ducks in the House will be flocking on December 19. Senate hasn’t decided yet, but either the 19th or the 20th is about right.
