There's a lawmaker in my soup
How about Rep. Anne McGihon's crucial HB 1126, "concerning the authority of physical therapists to perform physical therapy on animals."
Then there's this paternalistic absurdity called HB 1006, sponsored by Rep. Paul Weissmann. He wants to double penalties for moving violations when the driver is "knowingly distracted."
How is one "knowingly distracted," exactly? By living?
For the purposes of Colorado law enforcement, "knowingly distracted" includes, but is not limited to, cellphone use (even hands-free), grooming, reading, eating and drinking. In other words, it gives police almost unlimited pretext to issue double fines.
