However, last Thursday was a bit of an anomaly in that regard, and the unusual volume of discussion stemmed from two concurrent resolutions, one that I filed and one that I am carrying in the Senate for Rep. Rocky Miller. Concurrent resolutions have no force of law, but they do represent the mind-set and inclinations of the Legislature and urge action.
Last week local elections were held all across the state and I would like to thank all the individuals who ran for a position. I would also like to congratulate the winners in those elections.
