Hunter amendment: Toss out press, give legislators a place to work out
Maybe Steve Hunter has a point.
According to former Carnahan aide Roy Temple's blog, Fired Up Missouri, the Joplin Republican offered an amendment to the MOHELA bill which would take away press space at the capitol and have it made into a workout area for the legislators.
That would give the fat cats in our legislature a place to work off those excess pounds.
A more complete account of the Hunter amendment and how he envisioned the willingness of his special interest friends to finance the project, can be found in this St. Louis Post-Dispatch article.
