Kenton over at 750 Volts is reporting that Del. Mark Cole has introduced a bill amending our Commonwealth’s constitution coverting our legislature from a bicameral one to a unicameral one. You can read Kenton’s post here.
You can check out House Joint Resolution 585 here.
Friends, what we need from our Republican General Assembly are real, viable, substantial, specific solutions to specific problems facing our Commonwealth. It’s no secret that I believe transportation is the gravest problem we have and I’ve discussed a possible solution in past posts.
The last thing that we need right now are silly, time wasting initiatives like this that 1. do nothing but serve as distractions from the problems we need to solve and 2. would undermine the wonderful (but sometimes slow) legislative process given to us by our forebearers.
Currently this bill’s committee assignment is pending…it’ll probably go to something like General Laws, Privaleges & Elections, etc. Whatever committee ends up receiving this bill, I hope they give it the fast trip to File 13 it so richly deserves.
