Got a skeeter on my Peter re: Pete Schwartzkopf

Casino aid debate reaches final day Jon Offredo, The News Journal

“Nothing is a slam dunk in that committee, but I think it will be released,” said House Speaker Pete Schwartzkopf.

The bill has already passed the Senate and deserves to have a date on the floor, he added.

What about H.B.#23 Pete ?

Schwarzkopf cries when games are being play with legislation impacting “his” pals at the casinos! But it’s OK to block real transparency laws for public schools. Not good Pete! Just another reason to vote Rep Longhurst over of office.

Others on the committee are sponsors of the bill, including House Minority Leader Daniel Short, a Seaford Republican. The bills are not bailout bills, but a tax reduction that allows the casinos time try to regain financial footing, he said.

Yep and Rep Short voted yes on H.B.#334! So much for his credibility. Rep Short let’s just call your casino plan a backdoor bailout.

  1. The foia I’d like to see are how many calls, emails, etc that the legislators offices are receiving in favor of vs opposition of the casino bill; the smarter balanced bill; the finance reform bill, etc. that would really show who they are working for.
