Charles Perry Says Legislature Should Emphasize Quality, Not Quantity
With the legislature possibly heading toward a special session, state rep. Charles Perry believes the system could be improved by putting a limit on how many bills a legislator could file during the regular legislative session. He suggests there should be a limit of 10 for most members of the house, and perhaps an extra five bills for committee chairmen.
“I think if you did that, you would do multiple things,” Perry told KFYO. “One, you would make us focus on purely credible and important public policy, and it would make us better at that. Two, you would guarantee everybody that brought a bill to the floor would get it heard.”
Perry said such a system could cut state government in half.
