How Much is Enough?

It’s not every day that we agree with the editorial board over at the Albuquerque Tribune, but their editorial “10 days is enough for legislative session” hit the nail on the head. Legislators are like college students facing their mid-terms: rather than paying attention in class and studying for weeks in advance, they procrastinate — debating extraneous issues like cock fighting and resolutions on impeaching the President — until the last minute and are so rushed that they don’t take the time to carefully look at what they are doing.
Of course, it could be worse, several states like California and New York have year-round legislative sessions…that is the last thing we need here.
