PROFITABLE RELATIONSHIP: Politico takes a look at what it calls a "fresh innovation in the world of outside spending" for political candidates: "nonprofits organized around broad issues of public interest that actually function to advance the ambitions of a single candidate." Their poster children for the piece?

Good morning and welcome to Dome's Morning Memo this fine Tuesday.
TODAY AT THE STATEHOUSE: The House will convenes at 10 a.m. but it will be a no-vote session. Instead members will be focused on their budget proposal. It will in the Appropriations Committee at 8:30 this morning. From there it goes to Finance on Wednesday and then to the full House. The goal is to get it done by Thursday, and that could mean a third reading after midnight Wednesday.
