Fortunately, oddness never takes a holiday. And Bama Fact Check’s partners did spot some unusual bills over the last week.
No, there was nothing like Sen. Gerald Allen’s Wikipedia-inspired bill on Sharia law. But it’s not every day a legislator wants to roll back enforcement of seatbelt laws or ban sales of bulletproof vests. Or vague up an ethics bill -- at the Ethics Commission’s request.
There’s also an effort underway to ban the use of the gas chamber -- for dogs. Touching, yes, but a bit of an odd play from legislators who say they want less government regulation, not more.
Lawmakers will be back from the beach next week, so expect a raft of new proposed regulation.
