The next legislative session may well start like the last one ended.
Republican leaders are promising to push ahead with legislation that would effectively return any extra money the state might receive from changes in the federal tax code.

Without changing the law, the state stands to gain millions from a change in the federal tax code that encourages taxpayers to take a generous standard . . .
