This Latin phrase is pronounced different in Oklahoma. But the meaning is the same. Sinna-Deeah is how an English homonym would be spelled. Us Okies aren't that cultured, I guess. So we just sigh knee dye.
To a legislator, sine die means "I get to leave and they can't drag me back!".
The legislators are feeling less than jubilant right now. The senate still has to battle a vote of approval of the House's only budget product. HB1019x moves money, cuts a bit of fat, and ends a tax discount on petroleum production.
The senate largely wanted to tax the citizens even more with consumption-based taxes.
ˌsinə ˈdēə,ˌsēnā ˈdēā/
Last week the Governor had threatened to call them back, but I think we'd see a veto override of this new budget if she does do that.
These legislators were not paid additional income for their work in the past 8 weeks. They only got reimbursement for travel and lodging.
If you think the House is pressuring the Senate, you're right. But the Senate pulled the same maneuver last Spring. Payback can really bite.
