"SNAFU" (Situation Normal - All Fouled Up) has been the mantra, in the soon to be concluded session of the West Virginia Legislature.
In the last few days of the session and before the final decision will be made on legislative approval of bills that have been contested between the House of Delegates and the Senate, here's just a couple more examples of what the two chambers of our Legislature thought was important:
HB 4490 was passed by the House of Delegates. It is an attempt to hobble the Constitutional authority of our Attorney General to represent us on behalf of our 2nd Amendment rights, energy needs, consumer complaints, and much more.
SB 6 was passed by the Senate. It is an attempt to crack down on illegal "Meth" drug manufacture, with a well intentioned but ill-conceived proposal to force law abiding citizens to get a doctor's prescription for over-the-counter "Sudafed" cold medication.
The Legislature also will be continuing, beyond the Midnight Saturday adjournment, with an extended session to pass the final West Virginia budget.
This budget will include more welfare programs, state funding of Obamacare, and continued authorization to abort the lives of unborn children.
What about the multitude of legislative proposals to increase our economic prosperity, decrease bureaucratic regulations, and protect our individual liberty?
Why were most of these good governance proposals not even given committee hearings and votes by the leadership in the House of Delegates and Senate?
Inquiring minds want to know.
