Much as I would like to see the online sales tax bill reconsidered in the special session, I prefer specials to be very narrowly focused. Medicaid expansion is something that needs to be taken up and Gov. Hutchinson has signaled his intentions on this. Anything else, including the trove of social conservative bills Rapert, Ballinger, and crew have in their pockets, should be kept in their pockets until the next biennium.
