The bill passed and will be sent to the House for concurrence in SA1.



This is the Judge shopping or venue shopping legalization act?
While slightly being sarcastic we should have done an all hands PROPONENT WITNESS SLIPS. 
Why to embarrass the shyte out of these people!

Every attorney that touched, voted for, and signs this into law should have complaints filed against them with the state bar!
There is NO saying that these are people passing what “they think” is a legal law. They are attorneys, they know better, they have legal staff that knows better.

Mr. Harmon made some arguments that made sense to his side of the aisle.  I'm guessing the courts won't see it that way.




It's very instructive that this state believes that it has the right to determine the venues where alleged violations of the FEDERAL constitution may be tried.


As an edit: One wonders how Mr. Harmon (or his caucus members) would feel about having to travel to Washington D.C., or New York City, to be able to file suit against the federal government regarding a constitutional issue? I think we all know the answer to that.
