Last Friday was the deadline for legislators to submit bills for the current legislative session. About 2400 were submitted. You can see a list of them here. But there is no list of donations to lawmakers from enterprises doing business with or regulated by the state who care a lot about those bills. That list won’t be made public until July 31 — legislators have voted on the budget and held countless committee hearings. Does that make sense to you?
We wish there was no money in politics. Until that changes, lawmakers should reject donations from any and all enterprises doing business with or regulated by the state.
