Description: You have people that are limited in term so they sometimes put their own agendas ahead of what possibly is best for the state.
 

Green says this year is worse than any other since he began working at the capitol in 1989.

Description: It seems like there has not been a mission to accomplish this year.

The last day of the 2008 legislative session is this Friday.
