General Assembly – Week Two

By Lloyd the Idiot

I picture the 45-day  “short” session of the Virginia General Assembly as Olympic ice skating on the short track: a fast, crowded sprint with elbows flying and many participants crashing in spectacular fashion.

Indeed, legislators have introduced more than 1,500 bills for consideration each jockeying for position to get his bills through the sausage grinder.  Let’s just hope they all learned something from last session’s disastrous foray into social engineering, and focus on things like ensuring the Commonwealth remains business-friendly and improving our transportation infrastructure.

Something tells me that’s just not going to happen.  Sigh.

    Well, there was the off-schedule redistricting move yesterday. Does that count for “ensuring the Commonwealth remains business-friendly and improving our transportation infrastructure.” Just remember, you guys drew first blood here.

    That surprise redistricting vote is some classy stuff.
