Will there be support for the Governor's proposal for a half-percent sales tax increase to be put before the voters? We hear from members of the Roadkill Caucus - moderate Democrats who could play a critical role in budget negotiations and tax talk. We'll also talk with Republican lawmakers about their take on the Governor's proposal. Our Insiders Roundtable weighs in on the session and other top stories of the week.
