If lawmakers have any time or energy once they stop arguing about the budget and transportation, they'll likely spend it on bills that would "reform" the death penalty, legalize gambling, and charge residents for nuclear power reactors that haven't been built yet.

The good news: Lawmakers are lining up to support a bill that would allow alcohol to be sold in stores on Sundays. It won't solve the deficit – an additional day of booze revenues would only generate $4.8 million in taxes – but it would at least provide more options for drinking away your economic sorrows.
