“All animals are equal, but some are more equal than others” -Animal Farm
This week our elected public servants pulled a real doozy, you have to read this to believe it. Who do these people think they are?
“Members of Congress could run blue lights on their cars, something prohibited now for everyone but law enforcement, under bipartisan legislation filed this week at the statehouse.
Senate Bill 618 would cover only current members of the U.S. House and the U.S. Senate, only their officially registered vehicles and only “in the performance of the member’s official duties.”
“There are frequently times when they’re trying to meet deadlines,” sponsoring Sen. Floyd McKissick, D-Durham, said Thursday.
McKissick said Democratic 1st District Congressman G.K. Butterfield asked for the bill. McKissick lined up a Republican co-sponsor: Sen. Danny Britt, R-Robeson.
“Any bills I have, I look for bipartisan support,” McKissick said.
Britt didn’t respond to a message Thursday seeking comment on the legislation.
Current law makes it Class 1 misdemeanor for anyone other than law enforcement to have blue lights on a vehicle.”
