Wednesday's House Approps meeting: more than just protecting bigots on the agenda

As if his Bigot Protection Act hadn't set up tomorrow's meeting of House Appropriations to be very contentious, Rep. John Kavanagh (R-Fountain Hills) scheduled two other "interesting" items for consideration:

SB1325, turning small (< 600 students), rural (> 30 minutes and 20 miles away from the nearest "law enforcement facility) schools into armed encampments (regular agenda)

How about we call this bill the "Creating More Dead Students Act".

SB1363, expanding Arizona's school voucher program "empowerment scholarship accounts" (special agenda)

Let's call this one the "Yarbrough Revenue Enhancement Act".

Hmmm...how about a pop-culture inspired prediction?

My Buzzword Bracket for tomorrow has for its Final Four (predicting the words used most often by the Rs in the room) -





And no matter which one emerges as the champion (I'm betting on "Business"), the people of Arizona will go down to defeat, submarined by their own elected legislators.

Whereas the "Keep Government School Staffers Disarmed" is *guaranteed* to protect students safe from crazed or criminal minded people with guns?

Add a "status quo" between Disarmed and is above.
