#MTLeg Tweets of the Week 20 Mar 2011

Shares

Your weekly collection of the best in 140 characters or less this week from the Montana Legislature. In the future, if you’d like to nominate a post, be sure to append the hashtag #MTLTOW so I see it. Far too much happens on the #MTLeg during the day when I am at school for me to catch up later.

Enjoy!

Nominees:
  • @brycebennet:These students from the School for the Deaf & Blind deserve so much more that the cuts they got in HB 2. Heartbreaking. #mtleg
  • @ACLUMT: Harris Himes proposes extending #deathpenalty to drug smugglers and those who curse their parents.#mtleg
  • @Mike_Wessler: In honor of #StPatricksDay, H State Admin moves the state towards the gold standard. #MTLeg
  • @problembear:MT homosexual couples should file into police stations across montana and plead guilty to breaking MT law against homosexuals. #MTleg

  • @MontanaNut:State Representative Marbut offers an amendment to Sheriffs First bill in #MTLeg
  • @inthemilk:House Judiciary wrap-up: Abused kids don’t need attorneys; consensual gay sex is still illegal; the death penalty’s awesome. Nice. #MTLeg
This Week’s Winner

@Barkingskwerl:If #MTleg secedes our state from the union just think, Alberta can capture us and make Montana civilized again! Plus we’ll have health care.
