Welcome to an Exciting Day at the Legislature

Posted By on Mon, Feb 7, 2011 at 10:17 AM

Happy Monday! Random Musings' recap of the bills to be heard in the Arizona Senate Judiciary committee is wildly depressing:

Judiciary will meet on Monday in SHR1 upon adjournment of Rules. This one is nearly *all* ugly, even though a few bills were removed from the agenda (and even those were bad). On the agenda: SB1201, a firearms "omnibus" bill. Rather than attempt to explain all of the bad in this one, just read the summary compiled by legislative staff; SB1308, directing the governor to enter into a neo-Confederate alliance with other states that create a 2nd class birth certificate/non-citizenship for immigrants law such as would be created by the following bill on the agenda...SB1309, the nativists' anti-14th Amendment bill; SB1465, barring the acceptance of consulate-issued ID cards as valid identification; SB1469, greatly expanding someone's ability to kill another person and escape justice with some sort of "defense" claim; SB1490, barring counties from issuing food service worker cards unless the recipient proves his citizenship/"authorized presence" first; SCR1025, a proposed amendment to the AZ Constitution ending Clean Elections; SCR1034, the secession-by-any-other-name/"nullification" screed declaring that Arizona doesn't have to follow any federal laws or rules it doesn't like.
