Legislative limerick No. 1: Amend it again, it’s almost the end…

When Sen. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d’Alene, brought his thrice-amended bill regarding legislative substitutes, SB 1370, to the House State Affairs Committee today, members had some questions about some of the wording and pondered whether another amendment was needed. The much-amended bill doesn’t actually do much of anything, at this point; it just says legislators who appoint substitutes should verify that they’re qualified. The committee decided to just pass it as-is; it’s on its way to the full House.

Which prompted this, with all appropriate apologies – my first legislative limerick of this year’s session:

Rushing to get out of town

Can lead to some flailing around.

Amend it again

It’s almost the end

But don’t try to slow this thing down.
