Teens are free to trot down to the local abortion clinic without parental notification, let alone parental permission, but if SB 291 is passed into law, they’ll have to get a note from mommy before patronizing a tanning salon.
This ridiculous bill passed the Senate this week with two Republican votes. One was term-limited Dean Rhoads; the other, naturally, was liberal nanny-state Republican Sen. Joe Hardy.
How many signatures does it take to launch a recall again?
OK, one more RINO Joe item.
There’s a bill sponsored by Joe Hardy that would allow a candidate who loses a party primary – let’s just say, for argument’s sake, a liberal Republican – to then file and run on the general election ballot as a write-in candidate. I call it the “Lisa Murkowski Bill.”
Well, RINO Joe’s bill came up for a vote on Tuesday night and went down in flames. In fact, RINO Joe was the only senator to vote for the bill. It was killed, 20-Joe.
