This arsonist is going away for a long time

Article posted on February 8, 2017

It was a long day on the floor, but we got the abortion law update passed, 32-18, and Paycheck Protection, 28-22.  Both votes included some nasty exchanges with the Democrats, but the members working the bills on the floor held together, advanced good arguments, and won the day.  I got back just in time for a commitment I made to help with a mock trial event at the Blair County Court House.  It was an interesting experience; the kids did a good job.  The jurors judge the participants by rating each step in the trial.  I was the only non-attorney in the jury box, so I couldn’t have gone too far astray.  Tonight, the prosecution made its case: this arsonist is going away for a long, long time.
