Lindsay Petterson, whose story I profiled here last month, is happy that the Legislature has finally reached a deal on compensation for victims of the I-35W bridge collapse last August… and maybe a little hesitant about what’s next.
She posted on her Caring Bridge Web site today:
I will be curious to see how my emotions play out in the next few months. For so long, I was able to focus on the legislative stuff when I felt hopeless and helpless. At least I could do something to make a difference. I’ll just have to wait and see how things play out at least.
