Once every two years is more than enough

North Dakota is one of six states that meet bi-annually thankfully. This year our legislators have voted themselves a 12% raise, last session they wanted to totally ban tobacco from the state, continue to raise fee's in spite of a huge surplus, and continue to push more and more control on people's lives.

If it was a full-time legislature these self-important people would come up with continually worse plans for the state. While there are things that need addressed, the thought that they need to meet every year for a population of only 600,000 is ludicrous that we need more laws than we already have. Shoot, we have a hard time getting these people to vote to pass expanding North Dakota's Department of Corrections or doing the things we actually have to have in the state, giving them more time will only give us more bad laws.

This isn't going to pass, but it this idea needs to be put to bed once and for all.
