Anyways, back to the discussion of the special session. It looks like the Republicans want to pass 7 key items (of course on their terms):
I know some of my fellow progressives like my buddy, "Mooncat", on Left in Alabama has expressed their grievances and agreements with the proposal. Although others are just looking for a reason to "cause strife" between the "Riley camp" and the "Bentley camp". Not that I disagree with looking for a counter tactic for Democrats to use against the Republicans, but they had control of the Alabama Legislature for 136 years and did nothing but hold on to power.
The outgoing governor and newly elected state legislators are just a beacon of interesting ideas including newly appointed Senate Pro-Tem, Del Marsh, who has recommended legislative staff reductions. The catch is that they might be bringing in their own as usual, who might get paid just as much...
This whole situation with this party shift is a mess, but many (including myself) warned the Democrats of their antics of doing nothing would come back to haunt them sooner than later.
