Apparently almost everyone except the politicians (republicans) in OKC understand that revenue cannot be raised in the last 5 days of session. Article 5 Sec 33 is written in eighth grade English and clearly exempts all revenue raising measures. Changing the word “tax” to “fee” doesn’t change the meaning of the law. One would assume that those casting unconstitutional votes this week either didn’t understand the eighth grade language or they choose to ignore it. Either way they need to be promoted to citizenship back in their district and replaced with someone who cares about the rule of law. The republicans involved in this bate and switch game need to be replaced in 2018.
