HJR 3 was perfected today. I listened to the debate on the bill's perfection via the House audio stream. It will probably come up for a vote this week or next.
What this bill does is put a Constitutional Amendment on the ballot in November, 2012. If voted on, HJR 3 would effectively eliminate the rights of the voters of Missouri to vote on any agricultural animal legislation.
Of course, the same people that bring us HJR 3 are the same people who have told the voters of this state that we don't matter; that we're stupid, and ill-informed; that urban voters have no right to vote on any rural legislation; that our votes don't count.
What they'll do to pass this law is, well, lie to the people of this state. They'll play on the fears of eggs costing $10.00 a dozen, or little kiddies starving in the streets because no one can afford to buy any food.
