It was a rough time for me and your thoughts and good wishes meant a lot to me. Thank you so much.
It was my intent to monitor the legislature and keep you as informed as possible about bills that could impact us in a serious way. I had spent a good deal of time tracking the Bill Draft Requests (BDRís) trying to decipher what the one line description meant and what it would translate into when it became an actual bill. Itís a little like reading tea leaves.
There were over 900 BDRís in the hopper when I fell on 12/26. There are over 1200 now. If the track record holds over 500 will become law and We, the People will be bound up just that much more by the innumerable rules, regulations and bureaucratic dead weight that is suffocating all of society everywhere. Since Iíve been feeling a little better I have tried to put my toe back in the water but in all honesty Iím still much more focused on my rehab so politics is on the back burner - with the heat turned off.
There is however, one bill that has caught my eye. It is Assembly Bill 201. The bill,
if approved, will raise property taxes by 35 to 45 percent by 2013. Donít think the
local governments (who are behind this) would have the nerve to seek that kind of
property tax increase? Think again. This is from the Legislative Counsel Bureauís ďDigestĒ:
Had I not fallen I would have been on this (and lots of other bills) much sooner. I think the expression is, ďstuff happens.Ē It sure happened to me.
Thanks again for all the good thoughts.
