    The next time one of these foolish legislators complain about federal mandates (especially with their hands out for the federal money), arguing for local control, let's remind them of their mandates on local government, including perfectly reasonable local laws like this. It just makes me sick. The hypocrisy is astounding! Yet these clowns keep getting elected and ruled by special interests.

    Oh how the lawmakers hate being told what to do by the feds. Oh how they love to control local governments. Hypocrisy anyone.

    The idea of the State Government telling what a local government can do seems to border on hypocrisy when when it comes to sex education where the State Legislature is allowing local school boards to decide on whether or not to have sex education in their schools, that when it comes to air pollution that may affect the air in local jurisdictions and with various different ecological and geological conditions that the State Legislature believes in only one way fits all approach will work for air instead of sex education.
