3-28-13 MCRC Briefs

March 28, 2013
·        Yesterday’s Briefs Carried House Speaker Andy Tobin’s side of the story for his delay in scheduling SB1403 on the calendar; but SB1403 supporters aren’t buying his explanation that he didn’t schedule it because the bill didn’t come to him until March 21. Some keen eyed readers and bill watchers have pointed out that SB1363 (passed the Senate and sent to Tobin on March 26), rapidly appeared on the Appropriations Committee Agenda on March 27 while the by-passed SB1403 sat on the back burner.   
·        Correction:  According To LD28 Chairman Scott O’Connor: “LD 28 Has Taken No Position On Medicaid Expansion.  Many of our PC’s support the governor, and both our legislative representatives do, too.  We discussed the issue at length at our most recent meeting.  The audience was divided, so we took no official vote and had no resolutions on the floor.” Scott H. O'Connor,   Briefs (3-27-13 ) errantly reported LD28 among the other LDs that passed anti-Medicaid Expansion resolution.

·        Rivers Of Trash Running Throughout The United States It’s amazing to me that people in cities walk through piles of trash, but won’t stop to pick anything up. In the wilderness, farmers and small town throw trash and create dumps anywhere in the woods—with no regard for long term consequences. Trash litters every highway in America, but only six states feature 5 cent deposit-return container laws. Michigan remains the best with a 10 cent deposit-return law...  Frosty Woolridge
