Learning lessons in the Legislature


It has been three months since the 63rd legislative session was completed and I have delayed writing a final summary simply because I was disappointed in several political moves at the end.

The session accomplished a lot of good for many people, but I'm afraid it's what it didn't do that it will be remembered for. What it didn't do was properly fund the oil and gas counties so that they will be able to keep up with the drilling activity and repair the damages it causes.
