Points from Guv and no dice on gas tax ad

Posted at 3:27 PM on April 29, 2008 by Michael Marchio

T-Paw signed four bills today. Nice to see he's making time for us.

HF2911/SF3139, the online ticket software ban, or Hannah Montana bill, carried by Sen. Ron Latz and Rep. Joe Atkins.

SF2607/HF2904, which established procedures for natural disaster assistance, carried by Sen. Ann Rest and Rep. Gene Pelowski.

SF3300/HF3569, the U of M study on mesothelioma, carried by Sen. David Tomassoni and Rep. Tom Rukavina.

SF3778/HF3662, requiring a public hearing before appointing someone to a county board, carried by Sen. Tony Lourey and Rep. Bill Hilty.

It's been a good couple days for Sen. Lourey, getting a committee hearing for three bills yesterday too, no easy task this late in a session when most committee time is devoted to ironing out difference in conference. That's where Sen. Linda Berglin and Rep. Tom Huntley's health care bill, Sen. Yvonne Prettner-Solon and Rep. Bill Hilty's greenhouse gases bill, the omnibus finance, data practices, and veterans/agriculture bills all are stuck.

Remember the Republican's gas tax advertisement I wrote about here? Well it looks like the 49 Holiday gas stations that have those monitors won't be showing them. Holiday gas stations have issued a statement that they don't allow political ads to be shown on their monitors. If Minority Leader Seifert was correct that this was the first attempt to use the monitors for that purpose, then they must've just decided on that policy now.

Sounds like something somebody would have thought to check that before they made the ad. Or maybe it was all a ploy to get lowly blogger-types to pick it up and post it on their sites, getting their message out that way. Nahh. Let's take a look.

What do you think?
