The Legislative Tempo Is Picking Up

Like a locomotive, the legislature may start slow, but rapidly gains steam. Substantive hearings are beginning in committees and bills are showing up on the agenda. In House State Affairs two bills were returned to sponsors for more work. The first involved significant fee increases to promoters of boxing, wrestling and martial arts. The second involved a boundary change for four counties that was legislated properly in the early 1900s but never made the code book. In Judiciary and Rules we received a chilling report from police on internet crimes against children, and the Courts reported on challenges in recruiting new district judges. I have been working on significant amendments to our House ethics rule which should soon make its appearance. Outside it is cold, 4 degrees when I woke up this morning, but inside things are warming up. Time to get back to work.
