HCR-59 Passes out of House Appropriations Committee

After about an hour of debate and public comment, the measure, which would require full legislative approval of various aspects of the UMC project, most notably related to financing, passed 12-11.

Here's the AP report on the committtee move from The Advocate's blog.

Opponents of the measure kept saying at the meeting that the resolution would delay the project - and touted the level of oversight over the project.  I really don't buy that argument; this project needs a lot more oversight given the uncertainty that continues to swirl around it.
