Silly person, the bill will easily get overturned on appeal - there is a ton of precedent. The last two times a legislature did this the opponents got restraining orders and no changes occurred.

Whatever gins up your base and makes you more electable, I guess.

At least they made her speak. I wish the US Senate would do that. Seems these days all anyone has to do is threaten and the bill goes away quietly. Nothing like those old stories of Strom Thrumond reading the phone book for hours.

Maybe she trying to do her job (represent the will of the people who voted her into office).
