Senate District 06

Senator Massey: (R) Chair, Senate Transportation and Safety Committee, Member, Senate Health and Welfare Committee. Senator Massey sponsored only one bill that was scored by TLRC and that was the legalization of alcohol sales and consumption on university campus sporting facilities, which we opposed. We felt that it was inappropriate; universities being the home of mostly persons too young to legally purchase or consume alcohol. Not to mention the suspiciously-timed reversal of SEC policy prohibiting alcohol at their athletic events. Senator Massey is a lovely lady and has a respectable vote score. It must be noted, however, that the senate avoids taking votes on difficult or controversial bills by derailing them to the dist-bins of summer study or deferments. They also have a no-fault policy of not voting at all, even when present. How is that upholding their responsibility to their constituents? We hope to work more closely with Ms. Massey next year to achieve better results for all.
