Jeffares: Week 4 from the Capitol

We have now completed day 12 of the Legislative Session and things are moving quickly. Committees are meeting and passing bills daily. We are in full swing and I look forward to keeping you updated as we progress at the Gold Dome.

February 06, 2017 | Sen. Rick Jeffares | Legislative Updates

Belton: Slow and steady wins the race

The Session has been very slow this year. The reasons are many, but the biggest is the philosophy that conservative government – by design – should move slowly in order to avoid rash decisions. Thus, leadership has stated we will pass much less new legislation this year. Also, it seems a long way away, but there are dozens of names floating around for Governor and Lt. Governor in 2018, as well as all the other state-wide offices. Thus, many would-be candidates are posturing on where exactly they want to be… treading lightly to avoid any potential mistakes.

Welch: Learning what cops do

With much respect for the contributions and sacrifices made by the military, there's also another group of heroes who work daily to protect ourway of life. They pin on badges, strap on Glocks and climb into cars and SUVs with blue lights on top for a living. They are cops. Without our system of jurisprudence and those tasked with enforcing it, life would be vastly different for all of us.
