Opinion: Senate Rules Impede Reform
By Larry Barnett
web posted December 20, 2012

GUEST OPINION – I’ve been watching the state legislature for several years now, and I’ve seen the same scenario play out again and again – whether in taxes, government restructuring, education, or just about anything else. A sensible bill will make it out of the House, only to languish in the Senate and, weeks or months later, expire. Occasionally a reform will pass the Senate and die in the House, but far more often it happens the other way around.
