There's talk over at the Legislature that perhaps additional budget cuts should be imposed before adjournment. It's the second longest legislative session in the state's history -- already the latest-operating session ever -- and being in session in May means staying around long enough to find out how April tax collections have performed. April, the most critical tax collection month of the year, was off by $30 million.

The last -- and only -- time lawmakers were in town to hear April revenues was 2003. A lousy April 2003 prompted the House of Representatives to approve an increase in the cigarette tax.
