Spring is in the air, along with something else

As I was driving down the road this week past a long stretch of pines, I noticed what seemed to be a dust storm circulating just on the edge of the pine thicket. This dust storm was unique in that it was yellow and not brown.

That is what Georgia's leaders have done throughout the past 10 weeks of this year's legislative session.
