Government For And By The Few, Part 2 (Broken Oaths)

As I mentioned at the close of “Government For And By The Few, Part 1” we still had a chance to get HJR1026 out of the conference committee during the last week of the session.  Five Republican legislators stood in the way.  We told you we would name names, so here they are.  Senator Don […]

HJR1026 & HB2617 Pass Senate, Go To Conference

Both HJR1026 and HB2617 passed the Senate floor this week and will be sent to Conference Committees to work out differences between the House and Senate.  We expect HB2617 to work through that process easily; however, HJR1026 may be face a bumpier road.  Since Higher Ed has begun fighting it, others have piled on.  Misinformation […]

HB2617 To Be Heard; HJR1026 Passes Rules Committee

It appears that Senators Bingman and Schulz truly stepped up for gun owners by persuading Senator Barrington to hear several gun bills on Thursday, among them is HB2617, which we have been asking for over the last week.  This bill will remove almost all unsecured state and local government buildings from the list of prohibited […]

HJR1026 Among Twelve Bills Going To Senate

We’ve reached the mid-session point when all remaining bills have been sent to the opposite chamber.  The House passed and sent twelve bills to the Senate.  The Senate may prove to be the more difficult chamber for these bills.  The Senate only passed one bill out of committee and it never was brought for a […]
