It’s difficult to get beyond the tragic loss of House Speaker Michael E. Busch when evaluating the 2019 General Assembly session. His death on Sunday and the gut-wrenching final day of lawmaking that followed before the assembly’s adjournment Monday night cast a shadow over everything else that happened. Still, the 188 legislators managed to cover a lot of ground, tackling major issues from the minimum wage to clean energy. Particularly given that it was the first year of a term, when large numbers of legislators are inexperienced, it was a productive 90 days — but far from a perfect one. On several major issues, lawmakers didn’t quite go as far as they should have to push the state forward.
