I took this selfie in the committee room waiting for the conference committee to return. I was clean-shaven this morning. Man, I'm starting to look like Henrik Ibsen!
Seriously, conference committee is reportedly wrapped up and bill is being constructed. Having been involved in the construction of a bill of this size earlier in my career, it requires pain-staking attention to detail so it's no surprise that it is taking a bit longer than expected. Conference committee is slated to convene at 5 PM. I will report on the contents of the bill as soon as they become available.
