Sen. Tom Buford filed a bill that would change the Kentucky Constitution to give members of odd numbered seats in the House of Representatives four-year terms starting in 2012. Members in even numbered seats would gain four-year terms starting in 2014. They all currently serve two-year terms.
Giving more power to our elected representatives right now seems like an odd request, doesn’t it?
If members of the House are too busy to run for re-election every year, perhaps we need to split every district in half to lighten each person’s workload. That way, the people could get more representation and the politicians would be less likely to ask for such silly things as this.
