Miscellaneous

Some acts of government defy easy placement in broad categories like Crime and Environment and will be listed here.  They may be serious--a Congressional joint resolution honoring minority veterans of World War II--to legislators expressing support for good causes, like the Indiana House of Representatives designating Oct. 1, 2010, as Adopt a Shelter Pet Day.  Sometimes official proposals seem simply designed to relieve the stress of governance as when a New Mexico legislator introduced a bill requiring all custodians in the capitol building to be graduates of the University of New Mexico School of Law.
