General Note

  • Accompanying note "Nelson to the rescue! Rep. Bill Nelson, D-Melbourne, throws his body in front of the "first" bulldozer to show up at the old capitol. Nelson made the statement earlier in the session that efforts to save the old capitol had so frustrated him that he felt like he would throw his body in front of the first bulldozer that showed up to begin to raze the historic structure. Nelson was true to his word as Reps. Hill and Haben wound up a toy and started it down the aisle of the house chamber."
