Republicans have been manhandling the legislative agenda for 30 days now and it's pretty clear what their priorities are. 750 odd bills later (and some of them are downright odd) the middle class is still waiting on a little relief.
Meanwhile, hot on the heels of the Congressional celebration of styrofoam, freshman Senators Thom Goolsby and Buck Newton have prioritized the repeal of the ban on plastic bags at the outer banks.
Is this a kick-a-hippie bill? A jab at Marc Basnight's legacy? The bidding of some shadowy plastics cabal? Who knows-- but it sure as heck shouldn't be the priority of two Senators who don't even represent the three counties affected by the ban (Currituck, Hyde, and Dare).
