The 2nd Regular Session of the 96th General Assembly started today in Jefferson City. Representative Dwight Scharnhorst (r) wasted no time wasting time by introducing a symbolic bill which will consume time and effort in the legislative process at the expense of pressing needs, like, oh, education, jobs, health care. Your republican run Missouri House spends time on this:


Submits to Congress a proposed federal balanced budget amendment to the United States Constitution

Sponsor: Scharnhorst, Dwight (093)

Proposed Effective Date: 8/28/2012

LR Number: 4695L.01I

Last Action: 1/04/2012 – Introduced and Read First Time (H)

Bill String: HCR 3

[emphasis added]

It’s almost enough to make us disappointed that we missed the opening day of the session this year.

Not really.
