How will some of these committees get anything done? Some have too many members!

That is the idea, it takes so many to get something done. Most don’t show up!

Note Bobby Franklin replaced as head of Reapportionment by Roger Lane. Because it’s 2010 and time to take Reapp seriously.

Looks like Hembree must have sold his votes to Ralston in exchange for the powerful Rules committee chairmanship.

Looks like Hembree is a fast rising politician. He is suppossed to be a honest and moral man. I guess being honest still counts for something.
