David Shafer has his thoughts up. Here’s an excerpt:
Apparently believing the committee referrals to be an attempt to avoid taking action on the vetoes, the Speaker today suggested that the Senate shirked its constitutional duty in not immediately subjecting the vetoed bills to an up-or-down vote. But the word “consider” literally means “to think about carefully.” Referral to committee is an appropriate response, and I fully expect the committee process to work.
Senator Don Balfour, Chairman of the Rules Committee, has indicated that hearings could begin as early as later this week.
