Do you remember when Rep. TJ Shope sold out his fellow legislators and bought into Brewer’s Obamacare scheme? Well, looks like he is selling you out again…..
Rules Chairman Rep T.J. Shope Holding “Proxy Harvesting” HB2012 Why?
By Archie Dicksion
HB 2012 is currently pending in the House Rules Committee. For some reason, the Chairman, T.J. Shope is refusing to bring the bill before the committee for consideration. On Wednesday, I placed a call to his office to ask why he is holding the bill. Patty, his Legislative Assistant did not put my call through to Rep. Shope, and had no explanation of WHY the Bill is being held No reason at least that she was willing to share with me. I asked that Rep. Shope give me a call so we could discuss the matter. I have received no call from him at this time.
This morning I again called his office and was advised that neither he or his Legislative Assistant, Patty were in the office today. Seems our legislators and their staff only have a 4 day work week. Perhaps that is why the Bill has not come up for a vote as they do not have time to consider all the pending legislation with only 4 days of work per week. The word on the street is that the office of the Governor has requested the bill be held. Surely the Governor does not favor the unlimited use of proxies in our political party meetings. How could that possibly benefit him? WAIT!!! if he controls the legislature and the AZGOP Chairman – – – no that could not be could it, the Governor or someone in his office working against his own party and interest?
