    Peach State Politics by Ponytail Patriot

    in Politics

    Did the Georgia General Assembly lose their collective minds this year? If you're following HB 170, the Transportation Bill, you probably think they have. Having studied the original bill and now the "Senate Substitute", I am absolutely convinced their is something in the water under the Gold Dome, OR someone needs to open the windows to clear out all the carbon monoxide in the chamber, legislative offices, and committee rooms! HB 1, the Medical Cannabis bill, cleared another hurdle in the Senate on Thursday, now it goes to the full Senate for a vote. Some changes were made to the bill and we'll discuss that. And how can an elected official (or government employee) resign from office under questionable circumstances only to be awarded a "consulting contract" or be hired in another part of the state? What was Griffin Judicial Circuit District Attorney Scott Ballard thinking when he hired former Douglas County DA, David McDade for the Fayette County office? We'll also be giving the latest updates and possible movement regarding any investigations into the background checks conducted by former Paulding County Administrator, Mike Jones. Make sure to tune in as we discuss all of this a more. As usual, we'll have some awesome music by Liberty Minded artists to keep us upbeat and motivated. You won't want to miss a minute.

    A PROTECTION ORDER FOR FIDO? THIS COULD BE BIG!

    in Current Events

    A PROTECTION ORDER FOR FIDO? THIS COULD BE BIG!


    People who know about domestic violence know how animals are often victims of abusers, and animals are often reasons women find it difficult to get away from an abusive situation.  If someone says they will kill the dog if you leave, you think twice about leaving.


    Rep. Liz Vazquez (R) of Alaska understands how domestic violence works. She knows abusers use every trick in the book, every controlling thing they can think of to keep their victims under their thumbs. That’s why she is sponsoring Alaska HB 147. The bill would allow courts to include animals in a protective order, which means that if the protection order is violated, there are consequences for the abuser just as if he violated a protection against the human being protected.  Think of the possibilities such a bill could have, not only for protecting pets, but also for helping victims and their children.


    Rep. Vazquez was born in New York, went to law school at Cornell, served as an administrative law judge and was an assistant attorney general and prosecutor. The first co-sponsor of the bill is Rep. Max Gruenberg (D), who has been an Alaska State representative for 20 years, a decorated veteran of the US Navy, who graduated from Stanford and the UCLA Law School. They are just two representatives at the forefront in what is a law that could have great benefits for victims of domestic violence.


    Join both representatives on Saturday at 11 am Pacific Time to find out more about this proposed legislation, and to talk with the representatives sponsoring it.

    WEST VIRGINIA BECOMES THE ELEVENTH STATE TO PROTECT PAIN-CAPABLE CHILDREN AS LEGISLATURE OVERRIDES GOVERNOR TOMBLIN’S VETO.


    WASHINGTON – In a 27-5 vote, the West Virginia state Senate today joined with the state House of Delegates in voting to override Governor Earl Ray Tomblin’s veto of the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act (HB 2568), legislation that protects unborn children from abortion at the point that they are able to feel pain. Tomblin's veto came after the state House of Delegates and the state Senate overwhelmingly approved the bill in February. The legislature’s successful override of Gov. Tomblin’s veto means that the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act will go into effect in 90 days.


    Despite having passed the legislature last session, Governor Tomblin's first veto of this legislation came after the session ended, preventing an override vote.


    “Medical science provides substantial compelling evidence that unborn children flinch away from painful stimuli, that their stress hormones increase when they are subjected to anything painful, and that they require anesthesia for fetal surgery,” said Mary Spaulding Balch, J.D., director of state legislation for the National Right to Life Committee. “States have a compelling interest in protecting the lives of unborn children who are capable of feeling pain from abortion. West Virginia becomes the eleventh state to recognize this obligation by enacting the Pain-Capable Unborn Child Protection Act.”


    The legislation is based on a National Right to Life model bill that is currently in effect in eight states across the country: Alabama, Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Texas.

    PA Rep. Mark B. Cohen - Office for People with Disabilities Act

    in Culture

    Join us for a conversation with Rep. Mark Cohen, of the 202nd Legislative District (Philadelphia). We will discuss the importance of his sponsorship and upcoming reintroduction of HB 1183, known as the Office for People with Disabilities Act. The Act would establish The Office for People with Disabilities within the Office of the Governor, instead of its current location under the Department of Human Services. We will also discuss how to work with legislators to suggest and support the passage of bills to improve the quality of life for residents of Pennsylvania.  


    Rep. Cohen is the “Dean” of the Pennsylvania General Assembly -- the longest serving member in either the House or the Senate, Democratic Chair of the House State Government Committee, and past Democratic Chair of the House Human Services Committee. Rep. Cohen received his Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Pennsylvania, a Juris Doctorate from the Widener University School of Law and a Master of Business Administration from Lebanon Valley College.
