Now that the Democrats in charge of the State Capitol have solved the budget crisis by raising taxes and raiding cash funds, the Colorado News Agency reports the Dems have set out to solve a major problem that confounds us slow-witted peon parents:
House Bill 1147 would authorize law enforcement to issue an “informational” traffic citation–a card containing safety information about wearing a helmet, not an actual ticket–to any child over 2 years old who is on a public roadway or public place and who is not wearing a helmet. The purpose of the bill is to promote helmet usage and to foster a better relationship between young people and the local police, said Kefalas.
My friend and colleague Amy Oliver isn’t sure how “I would ‘manage’ raising my kids without” HB 1147 sponsor Rep. John Kefalas.
Does anyone outside the Golden Dome really believe this bill is the best way to achieve its intended effect? Does anyone outside the Golden Dome really believe Colorado kids need more nannies?
