Ban Democrat Chairs
When our Republican Speaker hands committee chair assignments to Democrats, he's giving them the ability to block legislation coming out of those committees. If a bill never leaves the committee, it never gets to the floor for a vote. It does create a convenient excuse for someone to say "I tried, but it never made it out of committee".
If we want to move the ball down the field - that ball being our Republican Legislative Priorities - then we need to keep every advantage we have. We need the majority party which we voted into power to stop giving away that power to the minority party.
Sadly, within the first 2 days of the 88th legislative session, all but 3 of our elected Representatives ignored this priority. Last session, nearly 40% of the committees were chaired by Democrats. This session there are 8 Democrat chairmanships with another 22 as vice chairs. The speaker also created a select committee on Youth Health and Safety...and placed a Democrat as the Chairman. Unbelievable! This makes 9 Democrats in chairmanships. Use the link below for more information.
