Kentucky state legislators have pre-filed two bills for 2012 so far to make felons of people who have “knowledge” of a dead body but don’t report it. That’s two more bills than have been filed to address a real Kentucky problem like our state debt.
But compared to the impossibility of proving someone was aware of a fatality, demonstrating that state officials know about our debt situation is a snap. For people who like to hear themselves talk as much our our politicians do, their silence on the debt issue is all the evidence we need.
If state politicians have any plans to do anything about our mounting debt, the need to start telling us about it now.
