    It seems to me that our state legislature wastes time at the beginning of the session with "fluff declarations, and message bills."

    The last day is orchestrated so the members have to vote on bills which were added at the last minute and they have not studied the bill nor in some instances read the bills.

    In my opinion in the hussle and hurry of the last legislative day and evening many of our own legislators are manipulated into voting for bills simply on the recommendation of the legislative leadership.

    They pass bills requiring accountability and responsibility for educators. I wonder if the same standard was applied to our legislators how many of them would be judged adequate?

    Lets hope they were successful in eliminating mandatory auto safety inspections. Can't have big govment meddling in peoples private lives like that. After all why should we be concerned about t little things like brakes, working brake lights, tire tread, things like that. Thank you Representatives for making Utah's roads and highways safer.
