There's this bill in Springfield that bans gummint giveaway announcements in pre-election months.

It would impose limits on gummint as Santa Claus, a favorite Dem stance.

The House passed it unanimously, but at the Senate it fell into the hands of one Donald Harmon, senator from Oak Park.

Weeks ago.

Harmon sits on it to this day, will be seeking clarification when he has time.

Thanks Jim for bringing this to the attention of Oak Park residents. Wonder why the Wednesday Journal didn't report on it ?
