Democratic Senator Ed Quick says now is the time for cuts in the House because term limits are about to change the membership anyway.

OutCue: "MEMBERS OF THE HOUSE."
Contents: QUICK SAYS IT IS ONE CHANCE IN A LIFETIME TO DO THIS WITHOUT EFFECTING ANY SITTEING MEMBER OF THE HOUSE.

Quick says four million dollars a year would be saved if the House were almost sixty members lighter.

But Senate Republican Leader Steve Elhmann says there are more important issues to consider than Quick's bill.
