Where’s E. J. Pipkin?
Tuesday, my Red Maryland colleague Brian Griffiths reported that Congressional candidate, Maryland Sen. Andy Harris (R-7) was attending a fundraiser in New York while the Senate was having a night session. May be, but when Andy’s in Annapolis he seems to be pretty busy looking out for Maryland citizens.
Where’s that bastion of “who knows what” E. J. Pipken? To date Harris has introduced (or co-sponsored) nine pieces of legislation. Pipken – ZERO!
Now before the Harris bashers start whining that the bills are “meaningless”, let’s take a look at a few:
SB-008 – The Maryland Taxpayer Protection Act that would require a 2/3 vote by both houses of the Legislature to enact any tax increase or to enact a new tax.
SB-040 – a bill to prohibit Maryland public colleges and universities from granting in-state tuition rates to illegal aliens.
SB-041 – a bill repealing the Democrat imposed sales tax on computer services.
SJ-001 – a resolution calling for a day to commemorate President Ronald Reagan. (symbolic, but very near and dear to my heart)
Again, where’s E. J.?
We stated that Sen. Pipkin had not sponsored any legislation do date. This was based on the Sponsor’s index site of the Maryland Senate. A commenter pointed out that Sen. Pipken had sponsored legislation and was correct. We apologize for the error.
