Standing up for the people

Rep. Dee Richard was on the Moon Griffon statewide radio show this morning.

Richard said he had 38 signatures (only 35 needed) of the House members on the petition for the leges to call a special session to deal with healthcare, prisons and higher education.

According to Richard, Senator Ben Nevers is gathering the 13 petition signatures from the senators. Richard did not know how many signatures Nevers has at this time.

The deadline for the senators to sign the petition is this Friday.

If you believe that the leges should stand-up for their constituents and against the governor contact your state senator today.

Apparently, some leges think that doing nothing is better than trying to do something. What they are really saying is that their committee chairmanships and pet projects are a higher priority than healthcare for their constituents.
