Before a law becomes a law, it's a bill, can be originated in either the house or the senate. The bill gets sent to a committee, made up of a few (dozen? I don't know) senators or representatives. If it passes the committee, it gets sent over to the other side (house or senate) for a discussion in a committee there. If THAT passes the committee, it gets sent to the full (senate or house) for a vote. If it passes the full (senate or house) vote, it gets sent, yet again over to the OTHER branch, for a full vote (senate or house) there. If it passes both full votes, it gets sent to the governor for approval. He can veto (nix) it, or sign it into law.

So, there are lots of opportunities for a bill to be tabled (put aside never to see the light of day) before it becomes a law.

Fortunately, this bill died in its first house of representatives committee.

That skit pretty much says it all. Maybe there was actually people watching that really learned something.

Hi Guys--

Good news indeed on the bill! Lets all try to keep an eye on it in case it pops up again, though. Sometimes they get resurrected at the last minute in the craziest ways.

In case anyone might be interested, while I was running around town today I stopped in at the Radio Shack bankruptcy sale in the mall. They were pretty well cleaned out, but what they have left is going at 80%-90% discount. They still had a few sealed lead-acid batteries that would work for flight boxes for about $3.00 each as of 4pm. They also still had a fair amount of LED's, switches, and other electronic components really cheap. I think the Butte store, and probably others in Montana, are also closing. Helena is supposed to be open for about 4 more days--JVH.
