Legislating Common Sense

New York State Senator Patrick Gallivan (R-59th District) New York State Assemblyman Robin Schimminger (D-140th District) are sponsoring a bill that would cover bowling shoes.  It would require alley owners to post signs, warning people not to wear bowling shoes outside, lest they become wet and increase the likelihood that a bowler could slip and fall when they come inside.

"Constituents come in all shapes and sizes, and every one of them have their own particular issues," said Gallivan. "I think it's their representative's role to speak up for them and, if it's appropriate, to  provide a legislative solution. That's what we're here for," he said.

 Needed Legislation

What we really need is legislation banning bullshit legislation!

Any stupid laws in your neck of the woods?  

Here, I'll get you started: It is unlawful for any person to exhibit any freak of nature within the City of Cripple Creek. (Ord. 1986 - 9 §1-2-106)
