GOP-Controlled Virginia House of Delegates: Where Many Good Bills Go to Die

In a nutshell, this graphic by the Virginia Public Access Project demonstrates why Democrats desperately need to take back the Virginia House of Delegates from the far-right-wing, ALEC-controlled Republicans. Notice where legislation (including many good bills dealing with every issue we care about) goes to die? That’s right, not just the Teapublican-controlled House of Delegates, but to subcommittees of the House of Delegates, where you there are usually no recorded votes or recorded proceedings. That means, in short, that these ALEC/corporate tools can work their will out of the sunshine, with no public oversight, and basically unbeknownst to anyone but their corporate masters. Ah, “democracy” Teapublican style — gotta love it (or, actually, not!).
