Staffers and state lawmakers watch a big rubber-band ball drop through the Capitol rotunda on the last day of the legislative session. June 8, 2021.

After a session that felt like three-sessions-in-one to many, lawmakers have finally headed home for a good long break. Our indefatigable hosts (okay, honestly, they're pretty fatigued) Bente Birkeland and Andrew Kenney wrap up everything they did, a few things they didn't, and what the implications of it all might be.
