River Country Journal has an news article titled, “Michigan House fails to end lifetime health care benefits for state lawmakers.”
While not surprised (really) by the outcome I do hope the idea gains momentum when it is reintroduced in 2011.
“The people of Michigan will not take our calls for reform seriously if we’re not willing to look in the mirror,” Jones said. “One of my first acts as a state senator next session will be to re-introduce this important legislation and help begin the process of reinventing Lansing.”
It’s a great point. Go Rick Jones!
