Re: HB 508, HB 928, HB 972, HB 1349 on the Senate Calendar t

From what I understand of Charles' recent posts on the matter, modifying the bill to include all citizens isn't an available option by the rules they work under. But I'd love to be proven wrong!

Charles L. Cotton wrote:This special treatment of Senators and Representatives will be a very strong issue arguing for another HB3218-like bill in 2015. Don't get me wrong, I don't like it one bit, but we live in a political world and when one must accept distasteful amendments, you use them to your benefit next session.

Chas.
It's the sort of bill that leaves a very, very bad taste in my mouth; images of the Soviet politburo living in a separate world comes to mind.

However, I hope it will wind up being a very strong lever for a 2015 version of HB3218, as you say.

Called Sen Whitmore about HB972 and was told flat out by Tara there's no way he's going to support it.
