I am strongly opposed to changing this law. It was just changed a few years ago to what it is at Sen. Kennedy’s request. The change he has now requested was proposed by the Republicans in 2004 and was rejected by the Democrats in the legislature. This is just more of the hypocritical partisan politics that I, and many people, are increasingly sick of. We have a law that was good enough 4 years ago and I don’t know what has changed that would justify this change. If Sen. Kennedy is so concerned he should announce his resignation for 5 months from now and get the existing process going so we don’t have to be without a senator. He is the problem here not the law.
