Since the Governor is lousing up the Reapportionment special legislative session with additional issues starting on September 6th(ahem, my birthday) I thought I would throw in a few suggestions for other things that could be taken up.
First on my list is going to a system of open primary elections in this state. Since the number of independents or decline to states is growing so strongly then lets give them a voice on the candidates they will vote for coming out of our primary election processes. These new primary voters could vote for anyone they choose, and so should the Democrats and Republicans. Make these usually closed and stifled elections really meaningful by giving everyone a shot at voting.
Next on my list is asking the legislature to pass a constitutional amendment doing away with the Public Regulatory Commission. This could possibly only take five minutes of time in each of the legislative houses. Just do it.
Pass an additional 10 cent gasoline tax and put the additional revenues into mass transit. Any city with more that 50,000 people should get a share for good bus systems and perhaps decent intercity bus service. That would be a real legacy.
We can dream.
