Just spent an hour or so reviewing the legislative proposals/bills for the past year submitted by our esteemed elected politicians here in Arkansas. The state senator from my area is a real PITA. She managed to spearhead changing the abortion law to 4 months max after which it is a crime unless incest or rape is involved. Not happy with that she then submitted a bill to limit and severely control the application of morning after type chemical substances. Fortunately it failed. Having a dislike for body modification(s) she attempted to place onerous restrictions on tattoo/piercing shops. It also failed. This lady is a staunch conservative and I thought she would be for less government interference, not more. They also passed an 'ag-gag' law that makes it illegal for anyone to hire on at a meat processing facility or animal farm under false pretense. No photography or audio recordings are allowed at these sites. So much for transparency. What is the industry trying to hide anyway?
