House passes conservation bill

Today, the House passed the conservation bill dedicating a portion of the sales tax to the environment. To tell the truth, I have no idea what the bill now says. So many things happened that it will take a bit to sort them out. I'm pretty sure, however, that at some point it became a bill full of pork transportation projects, and I do believe that as it passed the House it bans tax increases for seven years. Attempts to raise the sales tax and dedicate new revenue failed.

This sucker is going to conference. What fun.
