A bill is just a bill… Except for this one
Thursday, Feb 21, 2013
* As I’ve often said, a bill is just a bill, particularly at the start of session, when all sorts of weird ideas are introduced. There’s no sense in getting all fired up about silly legislation which is obviously going nowhere. I try to avoid posting articles about particularly goofy bills because I know doing so is mostly an empty exercise.
And then I saw this story…
My initial response…
* So, before I knew it, I was surfing frantically to the General Assembly website.
From the bill, sponsored by Sen. Ira Silverstein (D-Chicago)…
I eventually took a deep breath and reminded myself of my own advice. But I still couldn’t stop myself from posting about this legislation.
Sorry for breaking my rule here. But, man, if this isn’t the most intrusive Internet bill ever introduced in Illinois, I don’t know what is.
