Albany -- State Representative Ed Rynders says he thinks the state legislature is moving slowly and cautiously so far this session. The District 137 representative says he's still listening and learning a great deal during his first session in Atlanta.

Rynders says the budget has dominated the session, as the Legislature has to deal with less tax revenue.

Rynders says he voted No on the House's supplemental budget proposal and the Senate Budget, because he felt they had too many pork projects built in.

 Rynders said he thought Democrats and Republicans will compromise on some tax increases to keep from cutting more services. The State Legislature is in a two-week break.

 They return to session March 24 with 14 days left.
