"And I'm very concerned that without checking with the legislature, without going through the people's legislature, that this governor has chosen to modify his proposal to shove pork in the barrel because of his sagging numbers."

On the other side of the isle, Senate Republican Leader, Charlie Shields asked Callahan why he supports building projects but wouldn't approve of spending the impending revenue on university buildings.
