With only three voting session days remaining for 2011, news sources are reporting that a push to vote on HB 5014 is likely this week before legislators go on Christmas vacation!

I believe constituents and citizens need to be aware of any inappropriate conduct of their elected officials. My intent is not to engage in some silly tit-for-tat feud however, Michigan citizens have a right to expect that their Senators conduct themselves in a manner befitting their office.
Rick Jones is at it again. Somebody needs to put his computer in a lock box

I would like to share with you some insight in to the methodology of the passage of SB 693... and the fall out
Evidently some of Sen. Rick Jones (24th District) constituents were not happy with his yes vote or his comment on the Senate floor that I shared with you in the last Newsletter and post HERE "He had to "plug his nose and vote for the bill"
Senator Jones e-mail is HERE
So let's address his assertions, shall we?
First of all "You are spreading lies. You do not understand why we had to do what we did."

Irony! The first time in 41 years a bill could be introduced to correct a critical problem with P.A. 312, and instead the bill extends the reach of the monster legislation. SB Passed the house yesterday, and is on its way to the governor's desk.
Representative Rick Jones (R-Grand Ledge) spoke in support of the bill and in his actual floor speech said:
Might there be a solution? Given that the law states unfunded mandates to municipalities are NOT supposed to happen, (A current lawsuit by Charlevoix commissioners is now ongoing) This may well set up the state for a bigger fall than it has been headed for already.
Better Managers? or perhaps better legislators..
Rick Jones is running against Randy Brink in the 24TH DISTRICT STATE SENATE primary.
I hope the folks in the 24th can say "see ya later Rick." FAIL.
