Thursday, February 28, 2008

Start Date: 2/28/2008 All Day
End Date: 2/28/2008

Rep. Behning on SJR 1:

"It is unfortunate that SJR 1 is the only option available for permanent homeowner protection. I only voted for the resolution so that it can be fixed it in conference committee. I'm confident that nothing in this form will pass and that we can get back to the original resolution, based on 1 percent of a home's assessed value."

Rep. Behning on SB 345:

"Neighbors have been constantly calling my office to discuss illegal immigration. It is an important issue that we are left to deal with because of federal inaction. This bill is a first step toward improving our undocumented working laws. I would like to see it go further, restricting some taxpayer-funded benefits that illegal immigrants are currently receiving."
