What is state Legislature trying to hide?

(Continued)

The commission can subpoena lawmakers to get the information it previously requested, but it seems clear that the Assembly and Senate will fight this one with everything they’ve got. 

These characters make the House Republicans threatening to shut down the federal government because of objections over government spending look positively noble by comparison. 

So even though the talking heads in Albany seem to have closed their ears pretty firmly against common sense, we’re going to add our voice to the chatter. 

Listen up, folks. Is this really the legacy you want to leave behind? Do you really want to be able to say that you took a bold stance against transparency in government? If you do, understand that the interest you’re serving is not that of the citizens that you were elected to represent. It’s your own. And we won’t forget that at election time.
