Second Annual “There Ought Not To Be A Law” Contest

Russ Steele

Last year I submitted AB-32, but as you can see not much success so far. Now you can list the law you find the most offensive and see what happens. 

Doug LaMalfa writes:

Constituents, businesses and those sick of government are encouraged to offer ideas on regulations and laws that should be abolished.

“Even with massive fiscal problems California’s government saw fit to add another 745 laws to the books,” said Senator LaMalfa. “As we look for ways to improve California’s jobs climate I feel we need to eliminate laws and regulations that prevent businesses from growing and hiring new employees.”

In addition to having an idea taken through the legislative process, the winner will be invited to join Senator LaMalfa for lunch and will receive a California state flag that has been flown over the Capitol. “There Ought Not To Be A Law” proposals can be submitted by filling out a simple form on Senator LaMalfa’s website at by Friday, December 9, 2011.

“Nobody knows better the laws that need to be repealed than those who are suffering under them,” added LaMalfa. “The larger the government grows, the smaller the voice of the individual becomes. It’s time the state takes a step back.”

The contest winner will be announced in January, and the winning bill proposal will be introduced with the Senator’s legislative package in February.
