Session: The Legislature wrapped up its third special session of the year Sunday night. Unlike past special sessions that collapsed after lawmakers couldn’t reach a tax deal, this one ended with a sales tax revenue stream that will run through 2025.

There are other states now that are going to have to adjust their own state laws in order to take benefit from this ruling, and adjust to the new Internet tax and how that’s going to be done. So we have to kind of wait and see how different states go about it, make some decisions about whether there’s anything we can do within the state, and then beyond that I think there’s a case to be made that Congress probably should get into this issue a little bit more deeply.

We’ll certainly be willing to work with businesses to answer any questions they might have.

On the flip side, if Leonard and the Spurs are donezo, they need to weigh alternatives. Unloading him onto a team that doesn’t need to send back equal money puts them in play for more expensive signings. Packages built around picks and prospects will beg them to hit reset, but they’ll need to consider more immediate-leaning moves if they’re not planning to reroute Aldridge.
