It happens more often than you know within our political process, even more now due to term limits. However, I can only say that neither Sen. Hudak or I were in the legislature then and had no votes at that time. This is exactly why we need to focus on evidence-based research when looking at policy rather than the changing political tides. SB-133 does just that — looking at the date and looking for best practices based on proven outcomes. Hope that helps.
