"The need to fix the constitutional conflict makes the possibility of a quick resolution less likely, though one Senate Majority leader told the Empire that the issue might be fixed in a “30-second” conference committee meeting that lowers the maximum C felony punishment by 10 days."

So the difference between a Class C and a Class B felony sentencing could be as little as 10 days? I wonder how much it's costing tax payers to hammer this out...over 10 days. :/
