Legislative graveyard

The Birmingham News on Wednesday had a good roundup of a number of bills -- some good, many bad -- that have died in the Alabama Legislature this year. Among the notable casualties were a bill calling for the ticketing of red-light runners via traffic cameras, any effort whatsoever at a badly needed landlord-tenant law, and a measure calling for a constitutional convention to rewrite the antiquated 1901 state constitution.

The best news, of course, is that Rep. Gerald Allen, R-Cottondale, won't get his gay-bashing censorship extravaganza after all.

I posed about this too, wish you had trackback capabilities.

I was stunned at the one requiring public schools to display the ten commandements. Rather ballsies don't ya think. But, no one has to worry or fret because the bill is dead, right?
