Legislative notes

Posted By on Tue, Feb 24, 2009 at 12:04 PM

From the morning, via John Williams:

Rep. Lindsley Smith's bill to allow recovery of FOI lawsuit attorney fees for winning plaintiffs got a do-pass in committee this morning. The Claims Commission would handle the payments.

The primary seatbelt bill, already passed in the Senate, got a do-pass from a House committee this morning despite objections from the NAACP over racial profiling concerns. (This bill means motorists can be stopped solely for not wearing a seatbelt. As it is, it's a violation enforceable only on a stop for another suspected offense.)

  • Trump immigration protest at LR: Quick and fierce

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
