Row office encore in Capitol, this time in the House

Budget hearings continue in the House and Senate today.

In case you missed them testifying before Senate lawmakers yesterday, the row officers return to the Capitol make the case for funding in the 2013-2014 state budget today in the House.

Democrats control the three row offices. Some expect tougher lines of questioning by House Republicans compared with the veritable lovefest in the Senate. As one insider put it: the House will be more like mixed martial arts than the fencing match we saw on Wednesday.

In the Senate, expect questions on the Affordable Care Act when Insurance Commissioner Michael Consedine testifies and on shale gas drilling when DEP Secretary Mike Krancer addresses lawmakers.

Hearings are broadcast on PCN-TV (some may behind a paywall) and livestreamed on the House GOP caucus website or on the Senate GOP website.
