6. Not really. Not everything. It's not great, but there are some things.
He has agreed to accept the budget that was offered, but is insisting that all social issues formerly added to those bills, restrictions on collective bargaining by state workers, and a few other things be removed, leaving only the fiscal portions of the bills. In addition, he is asking for a $500 Million bonding issue for certain construction projects.

So, he has not actually caved completely. If he succeeds in getting this put together, a helluva lot of noxious crap inserted by the Republicans will be gone. Since they have no possibility of getting those things as separate issues past the Governor's veto, it is a concession I think the Republicans may well reject.

We don't know what their response is as of this moment. We should find out shortly, once the Republicans have checked with their bosses.
