Thanks for nothing, Roy.
Today the House Third Read and Passed HB 151, trying to fix the state’s REAL ID mess caused by a previous right wingnut controlled session of the General Assembly.
Rick Brattin (r) submitted an amendment which wasn’t considered:
….This section shall be known and may be cited as the “Show-Me Your Papers Act”…
Robert Ross (r) submitted an amendment which was defeated:
“115.016 Any elected official who votes or takes an action to support a measure seeking compliance with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 shall display, in a prominent location, in bold font with a text height not less than one-tenth of the article being circulated, at each and every election the member files for after the affirmative vote or action, the following description of his or her allegiance:
I WOULD RATHER KNEEL TO THE FEDERAL GOVERNMENT THAN STAND STRONG PROTECTING MY CONSTITUENTS’ RIGHT TO PRIVACY”….
Joe Don McGaugh (r) submitted an amendment which wasn’t considered:
…Any elected official who votes or takes an action against a measure seeking compliance with the federal REAL ID Act of 2005 shall display, in prominent location, in bold font with a text height not less than one-tenth of the article being posted, at each and every airport in the state, the elected official’s office and home phone number…
