Might pay cuts be in their future?



Among the 250 measures filed for consideration so far are six proposed constitutional amendments that will require a public vote. How does limiting the governor to one term, cutting legislators’ pay in half and the Legislature meeting ever other year instead of every year sound?

Would paying legislators less and making them work less get them to think more before they speak? Someone should propose a measure to stop legislators from saying things that make Oklahomans seem stupid to the rest of the world, a vote that would be well worth our time and money, considering all the fodder our legislators threw out into the world this past year.

I know, right?
