State House Moves To Gut Auditor’s Budget & Block County COVID Travel Restrictions Plus – a note on the “long game.”

The most common excuse offered to justify inaction by legislators at all levels of government is a claim of pragmatism. Lawmakers are fond to talk about playing the “long game” preferring to keep their heads down, avoid risks, build seniority, and hold on to their seats.
