Funny that the sponsor of that non-binding resolution even talked about how it isn't a big deal that was voted down, and he was doing it simply as a "feel-good" measure. (His words, not mine-see below for full quote)
If the legislature appropriates over $400m to help address water and the lake, is that more important than a non-binding resolution? Inquiring minds must know!
Anyone fretting about that resolution stalling while not paying attention to all the other bills that are moving forward with actual fiscal notes and things the state has to do attached is clearly only interested in team-sports politics and not actually the lake or the health of the state in general. If you go listen to the discussion in committee, there is absolutely a plan for the lake being pushed by Speaker Wilson, and its a very high priority of both legislative leadership and the governor. What party are those folks affiliated with, again?
Senator Blouin - "It’s just a resolution so I'm not too worked up about it. It was really trying be a feel-good sort of thing," he told FOX 13 News.
