With the passage in the Senate Education Committee of SF 13 (Resolution on the feds to fully fund special education) and SF 19 (fully fund NCLB), 62 points have been given to new Power Rankings leader Charles Wiger, and 31 points have been given to Sen. Sandy Rummel and Sen. Jim Vickerman. That is now heading to the Senate floor so it can speed its way to the bottom drawer of someone in Washington.
SF 19 has also passed the State and Local Government oversight committee. It does away with the Legislative Commission on Metropolitan Government. It accumulates BH and CP points.
Bob, being that I picked up Vickerman over the weekend, do the Beavers accumulate points on his bills that subsequently advance through the legislative process after his selection? We're all learning on the fly but it seems to make sense that after a legislator is officially on your roster any points earned AFTER the selection would go to that team. If nothing else, from your standpoint, it would make point allocation easier to track as rosters change over the course of the session. I hope this doesn't sound too much like begging!

Indeed, points accumulated by a "free agent" are not picked up when the free agent is signed. However, points accumulated AFTER the subsequent Monday (12:01 a.m.) do go to the team that claimed him/her.
Similarly, points accumulated by a "dropped" legislator (assuming there are any), stay with a team.
In Vickerman's case, he accumulated 4 points last week as a free agent. Bemidji will get all subsequent points those bills (and any other) accumulate.
