    Should this pass, perhaps it will catch on in other states. And maybe even at the national level if sanity returns to the Congress in November.

    I foresee this bill not moving. Anything with Gurtler and Moore as co-sponsors goes in the trash can.

    Gurtler is his own worst enemy. When the leaders of your own party (including the Speaker of the House!) campaign against your reelection, your effectiveness as a representative is seriously compromised. Now a sitting superior court judge has resigned from office to run in the Republican primary against Gurtler. Curiously, the governor has yet to appoint a successor to the judge -- the seat on the bench remains empty, perhaps through the primary election?

    Getting a Gurtler bill passed with those chips stacked against you will be tough. The fact that he is only a cosponsor is some small help, though.
