Republicans have full control of the legislative branch in 30 states.
Why haven’t all 30 states leaders been as outspoken as this?
No CLAP BACK? OP must not be a hood-ass pedra.
Republicans are more sensible and better people in general, but they’re all talk. No spine in most of em.
Libs are a bunch of sensitive little crybabies. But they do take action about their silliness.
Because they are weak faggots
Missouri is, as I suspect many of the fly over states are, getting ready to throw the kitchen sink at it. The governor is looking at calling a special session to draft some fuck you legislation ( they already passed one stating noncompliance with federal gun laws that don’t jive with state laws). The attorney general has said he will be filing or joining a lawsuit, and several law makers have spoken out about how opposed they are to this.
I imagine a lot of the opposition is getting their ducks in a row, fireworks should begin shortly.
26 of those 30 states have already announced they will sue over this.
I hope so. But usually it is just saber rattling and nothing more.
You would think that every GOP controlled state would have followed the example by Kristi Noem. But she actually had to call them out during CPAC on their lies.
“We’ve got Republican governors across this country pretending they didn’t shut down their states; that they didn’t close their beaches; that they didn’t mandate masks, that they didn’t issue shelter-in-place orders,” Noem said during her Sunday speech at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
“Now I’m not picking fights with Republican governors. All I’m saying is that we need leaders with grit. That their first instinct is to make the right decision. That they don’t backtrack and then try to fool you into the fact that they never made the wrong decision,” Noem said.
Dammit, you right.
Desantis? He’s the man.
Here’s an example of a RINO governor and his co-conspirators doing their best to protect themselves from liability while imposing lock-downs, shut-downs, and mask mandates.
Legislative working group calls for special session to address liability issues
Clark Corbin 07/30/2020
Two legislative working groups are recommending Gov. Brad Little call a special session of the Legislature to address education issues, or adopt liability reform during emergencies.
The group of House and Senate judiciary committee members was up first Thursday. In a morning meeting, the group recommended a two-page draft bill regarding liability issues. The bill could protect schools from lawsuits if a coronavirus case or outbreak is tied to a campus.
The Legislature’s Education Working Group calls for a special session during a remote meting Thursday.
Hours later, a House-Senate Education Working Group recommended that House and Senate leadership request a special session. Possible topics could include school transportation, funding flexibility, school closure authority and funding schools using attendance or enrollment calculations.
Now the ball is in Little’s court.
Under the Idaho Constitution, only the governor has the power to call a special session, officially known as an extraordinary session. The governor also can set the parameters for the session. And the Legislature has no power to take action on any topics, other than those the governor specifies.
For weeks, Little has said he is open to a special session, particularly to address liability issues.
Administrators say the liability issue is a potential obstacle to reopening Idaho schools. They said insurance providers told them they might not cover costs if someone contracts COVD-19 at a school and sues.
It wasn’t immediately clear if or when Little would call a special session, but several legislators said timing is an issue. In some districts, the first day of school is barely two weeks away.
“Our challenge is the sense of urgency, particularly as it relates to schools, knowing we have schools that are making decisions or needing to make decisions yesterday, as to whether they reopen or not,” said Sen. Todd Lakey, a Nampa Republican who co-chaired the Judiciary and Rules Working Group.
“The sooner we can get our recommendation to the governor, the quicker the potential special session can happen,” Lakey continued.
In the past 20 years, Idaho governors have convened three special sessions, in 2000, 2006 and 2015.
It’s “CLAPS BACK”, OP.
