"I hope and pray that the silliness will stop and we'll all do the right thing for these people that are here, for this great state and we'll stop the bullcrap", Justice said.

"We have got to stop the nonsense that goes on here", Justice said. It also would apply $90 million from the state's rainy day fund to close a projected budget deficit.

A bill vetoed by the governor means the lawmakers will be called back for a special session to adopt a spending plan before the start of the new fiscal year on July 1.
