BILL CRAWFORD: Leaders’ power play puts eggs on their face

How appropriate. Fate chose the week of the Egg Bowl for legislative leaders to have to wipe lots of egg off their faces.

How silly. House Republican leaders passed a rule, with Senate mimicry pending, to deny media access to the Legislature’s contracts, only to find out they were violating their own law….

…It’s not too late for Gunn and Reeves to follow Bryant’s example.

But don’t be too surprised to see a bill adopted next session exempting legislative contracts from the Accountability and Transparency Act.
