Spin Control

For those keeping track at home

Washington Votes, a Web site that offers information about the Legislature, legislators and legislation — as well as news and comments — has a rather telling set of figures.

There are three rolling counters. One for bills introduced, one for amendments introduced and one for new laws passed.

Tuesday’s counts:
2,292 bills introduced.
251 amendments introduced.
0 new laws passed.

The question is: Is that last figure a good thing or a bad thing?
