What is the business of leges?
According to House Speaker Jim Tucker, the vote on the merger of SUNO and UNO scheduled for Monday, on the House Floor, was postponed until Wednesday.
Tucker’s reasoning for the postponement of the vote is: “[A]t least two of the members who had committed to voting in favor of the measure were called away on business.”
One might understand if one member of the House was suddenly called away on a family emergency, but two called away on business makes one think that the Speaker thinks we are stupid.
Since the leges were elected to their current terms, they have known exactly when the 2011 Regular Session would be held. The leges are paid to tend to lege business for 60 days from April 25 to June 23.
The business of leges is voting on matters that come before them.
What type of business were the two leges called away for that was more important than the people’s business?
Either the two missing leges are avoiding their duties or the Speaker is peeing on our legs and trying to convince us it is raining on our legs.
