Today is Day 13 of the legislators' strike in Kentucky. Meanwhile, taxpayers continue to pay them (and their pensions continue to grow) while we all wait for the candidate filing deadline to pass.
And it is apparently too much to ask that one effort to give taxpayers a break receive the consideration it deserves.
House Bill 221, which would simply make people stop spending public money to buy illegal drugs, is exactly the kind of thing we need to be looking at now.
The bill needs a little work, but there is no reason not to move forward on this.
I call this bill the "Make Junkies Move To Other States Act of 2008."
