The first week of the Legislative session is usually a time for renewing friendships, meeting new members, and occasionally having the opportunity to take a few votes on the floor of the House. Last week was true to form.

You see, or hear, all sorts of warnings around this time of year. Things like don’t plug extension cords into space heaters or vice versa. Same with overloading circuits with Christmas tree lights and outside decorations and the like. Fire hazard they say.
