Sen. Kestell replied today that he agreed it is outdated, and since I brought this to his attention with my email, he has signed on as a co-sponsor!

It's because we have a bunch of morons in this state who believe a continuous election process is appropriate when their person didn't get elected (as opposed to have an election MEAN something and voting their mind in the next regular election). So, the legislative session may not go the whole period in order to allow those being recalled to campaign to keep their jobs (it's the same thing that would happen during a normal election year).

Calling your friends and neighbors morons is not constructive.

Remember that the next time your friend says it's a waste of time to interact with politicians. You can make a different, no matter how trivial this law may be to many people.
