Local Politics and Current Events

a legislature…like Charlie Brown.

Posted by David Keelan on Thursday, April 13, 2006

From the City Paper's Political Animal on the just ended legislative session.

Some choice phrases:

Lawmakers knew the stakes. A long hot summer, a deadline for 72 percent electricity rate hikes, a fall election, and plenty of blame to go around.

“The legislature had 90 days to finish the job, and they didn’t do it,” Paul Schurick said. Regardless of which way you come down on this, it’s hard to contradict that statement.

Words can fail you after an evening like this—you want to call it a carnival, a car crash, perhaps a catastrophe.
