Kevin, I am back

My friend Kevin, a talented writer, and even better analytical thinker wondered where my blog went.

It was there,

Now I am here (with the exception of Edublog).  And, I think I know what to write about now… this stuff at work is important.  If you don’t think so — talk to me.

A Utah Legislator Blogs

Phil Windley of Utah points to a legislator in his state who blogged his entire day yesterday.

Imagine how government would be if the entire legislative process were so transparent.

Perhaps that will be studied as part of my dissertation.

Oh, that reminds me, SB 425 — sponsored by the Christian Coalition and pushed by a company call Unspam, is law in Utah.  Wonder if Phil has any info on the Utah Experience?

Btw, the Christian Coalition says the bill is voluntary.  Well, if you are a business sending mail to Georgians it is not.  Every month you must pay Unspam to check your list for anyone that may have joined the “Do Not Mail Registry” — otherwise – you could be sued and charged with a felony.  So if voluntary means acquiesence at the point of a gun — then it is voluntary.

Another Busy Day

Hearings in a subcommittee this am for HB 1294 and HB 1305.

HB 1294 – extends a sunset on the law allowing the University System and Technical colleges to carry over fees from one fiscal year to the next.  These are “non-state” funds taken from students to pay for technology, athletics, etc.  Simply good business — otherwise campuses “spend” the funds before June 30 — much of the time on items not needed.

HB 1305 – updates state law concerning where funds budgeted for investment in startups may be invested in the short term…

Then we get to work on SB 562 — more on that later
Oh, and I got accepted to graduate school yesterday… Yeah!
