Coming Down the Home Stretch

Greetings, Friends

Late May means that it is crunch time at both the RI and MA state houses.  Months of work - hearings, letter writing, lobby visits and phone calls - are on the line.  It is also the period of time when lawmaking is at its ugliest.  To some politicians everything is reduced to horse trading.  Transparency, what little there was, is totally gone.  The merits of a bill may mean little as it becomes one of many bargining chips in a massive "game".
