How are you going to vote the Constitutional amendments?
 
I'm not sure about these. Just curious if you folks are voting for or against such measures....

Quote:

Constitutional Amendments
No. 1
Prohibit reduction of supplemental pay for law enforcement and fire officers


No. 2
Expanding supplemental pay to some other law enforcement agencies


No. 3
Prohibit the granting of additional state retirement benefits unless there is money to pay for them within 10 years.


No. 4
Exempt consigned jewelry from ad valorem property tax

I'm thinking...

1, against (reductions should always be on the table)
2, against (I don't even know what "supplimental pay" is. And "some other agencies" is too vague)
3, for (we shouldn't up any expense unless we have the money to do so)
4, for (its not the consignment shop's property to be taxed)

I'm with youHertz on the voting. Why is consignment jewelry even an issue for the legislators?

Do y'all remember the year they spent arguing over the State Jelly?

They need to have the Stelly plan back up for a vote :mad: I agree with rhertz on his choices.
