I wasted an afternoon a while back reading AB1/SB1 - the "mining bill". Well, not exactly wasted, but it was a disgusting experience, particularly if you compare what the blil says to what the Republicans are saying is in it. I've been trying to write an article about this for a while, but Al Gedicks has done a better job of this than I could. So I suggest you go read Al's article about the mining bill. Link below.
