A slow week in the House

After the "Sunday night massacre" things slowed down considerably in the House. Last week, we only passed six bills. The most controversial one was HB5046 which mandates that private businesses allow certain individuals suffering from diseases which may require frequent visits to the bathroom to use their private restroom facility.

I can appreciate the intent of the bill. It's compassionate...but once again, we must ask the question, do we really need the state government mandating common courtesy? Don't you think that any private business, like say, a Barber shop would gladly allow someone to come in off the street to use the bathroom if they were really in distress?

Once more, government expands, government has to dictate good behavior...
