In reading the laws recently passed by the legislature, I was dismayed at the ludicrous ones passed by elected persons who are supposed to be doing something responsible for the people.

An example of this is when they passed a law that lets 16-year-old persons register to vote, even though the law says they can’t vote until 18 years old. Excuse me, but when you register to vote the state will send you a mail ballot allowing that person to vote. I for one do not feel that persons in high school should have access to vote for various taxes that I would have to pay — and, of course, they do not.

Why can’t we get legislators to do a proper job instead of passing junk laws like this?
