Public comments for Acts 179 thru 189 are catalogued and uploaded

At this point, I estimate that I have dealt with about two-thirds of the records provided to me. This is another batch of records pertaining to legislation from 2009 that became law without the Governor’s signature. The document index continues to expand (over 4300 rows, cataloguing 2056 records!), but the end of my task, finally, is in sight.

This batch of records comprises comments on legislation relating to the following topics: tort claims against public utilities, telecommunications de-regulation, electronics recycling, renewing liquor licenses of tax delinquent businesses [Next Door and Jacques North Shore Bistro have particularly vocal followers, or so it would seem], establishing preferential rates for renewable energy produced by agricultural producers, physician orders for life-sustaining treatment, the use of airport revenue to apply for a FAA spaceport license, and a contentious bill about how lease rents are to be set by arbitration [which led to a flood of comments from employees of GP Roadway Solutions].

As ever, to look at any particular document, point your browser to
[substituting the asterisks with the four-digit document number you want, using leading zeros as needed]. For example, here is the link to view the first page of this latest batch of public comments. REMINDER: all of the contents of this site (to include the uploaded documents) are published under a Creative Commons license. Please, respect the terms of that license.

Nothing too shocking in this batch. Or, I should say, nothing to shocking to a person like myself not intimately familiar with the legislation. Your mileage may vary.
