Why Property Rights Are Important And An Inside Look At The Senate: Interview With Senator Mark ObenshainFeb 14, 2011
If you are wondering why we have emphasized the importance of property rights this session and the procedural games played by the Virginia Senate, then listen to an outstanding interview (below) given Saturday by Senator Mark Obenshain (R-26, Harrisonburg) to Scott and Richard Lee on Richmond radio station WRVA's Saturday Morning With The Lee Brothers. In it, the senator gives the inside scoop on what has gone down in the Senate regarding the on-going rules fights between Republicans and majority Democrats, and handicaps tomorrow's vote in a Senate Privileges and Elections sub-committee on HJ 693, a property rights amendment to the Virginia Constitution. It's very much worth the listen.
Now that you've listened, don't you want to do something about it? It's not too late and it's not just us saying so (see our friends at Disrupt The Narrative). Contact members of the sub-committee listed here and ask them to vote to report HJ 693, patroned by Delegate Johnny Joannou (D-79, Portsmouth).
