After reading former Gov. Calvin Rampton's viewpoint in regard to HB77 being sponsored by Rep. Dave Ure, I agree with Gov. Rampton that it is unwise to take from the governor the right to fill vacancies in the Legislature. In my opinion, it will only allow the Republican and Democrats to use legislative appointments as political plums to be given out as they see fit. Rep. Ure should listen to what Gov. Rampton has to say. "HB77 may be well-intentioned, but it is not well-reasoned."
