When are they going home?

Update at 5:40: The Senate is in recess until 6:00 p.m.

Here's what the sources are saying about when the honorables in the Legislature are getting out of town. Jennifer Peebles says that the House is moving fast through their bills after a plea from the Speaker. The "rocket docket" is in effect with the House up to item 43 of 59 on the agenda as of this posting.

Mr. Kleinheider notes Ken Whitehouse's post that it's unlikely to be today in part because of a scrap over mixed martial arts.

"Not even close" is how WSMV's Cara Kumari describes how far along the Legislature is in getting their work done today in a 5:00 posting. But this piece at rival WTVF's site posted at 4:20 says legislators might be working until midnight. (I know, I'm supposed to call them NewsChannel5, but I can't be expected to do marketing for t.v. stations.) No firm hints about whether it's today or tomorrow from WPLN.

A Sunday story by the Chattanooga Times Free Press's Andy Sher gives lengthy background on the cause of the delays.
