I hope they reintroduce the bill the moment the GOP comes back. Make them do it again, and again. Force them to shut down services. See how long everyone else in the state tolerates it -- not long, I'd imagine.
The 2019 session will be over at the end of this month. The state constitution sets limits on how long they can be in session--160 days in odd numbered years and 35 in even numbered years. So nobody will be in the legislature until about February next year and they'll be gone again in March of '20 until January '21. So there's no practical way to treat these shitbirds like the children refusing to eat their dinners they so closely resemble. Most of them will be up for reelection next year so there's that I guess.
