 This is a typical liberal Democrtaic piece of crap legislation.  Yes, we need a part time legislature, but more importantly we need  MUCH LESS regulation. Look at the rest of his bills---pure pandering.  Goerge is only atempting to show he is doing something by introducing nonsense such as this.  It's disgusting.  Can you imagine...he should be embarassed by introducing such garbage.

I can’t imagine why a law would be created for this non sense, I can only speculate. Some time ago

I was rear ended in my truck by a driver as I slowed to turn onto my street. She was following too close

And on her cell phone at the time she hit me. After both of us exiting our vehicles and looked for damage she was very angry that her car had all the damage, and I had none. My trailer hitch only sticks out 6” past my rear bumper.

I have an idea! The creation of this arbitrary and unnecessary law, (It has no ethical or safety basis whatsoever, save the people with too much time on there hands who seem to be able to come up with a reason for everything), which is of course highly biased, not to mention flat out stupid, is simply for revenue collection! Lets scale all public office positions to part time so they have to actually work, and won't have too much time on their hands! Of course it wouldn't hurt if society got over its issues with voting in the guy promising the free handout but never delivers! This law should be repealed and all those that voted in favor of it should receive pink slips and be replaced. American freedom expansion!
