There is more to this area then this lake, it needs to be funded by the rich people that live around it.

If they did not have enough time to read through it then they should have voted NO! I don't care if it would have been better or worse, but just like the un-SAFE act, if you don't have enough knowledge to vote comfortably, simply vote NO and make them bring it back after you have had time to review it.

Gee, the Dems thought it was ok to approve Obamacare without reading it, but not this simple resolution which seems to be pretty straight forward and a no brainer, except during political season.

carlaw - Nancy Pelosi probably still doesn't know what's in it. What I know is that my health insurance just took another huge premium jump. So much for affordable. People on here whine when their taxes go up $20 a year. My insurance just jumped by $75 - a month!

At least I now know who is against the Lake, and therefore who I am against. The lake is the only reason we live here. If it is neglected, we will move and spend our taxes elsewhere, and the county can build more apple yards projects to replace lakefront homeowners who move out.

First, I agree with yankee totally. Why vote yes on something you don't totally understand. Second, seriously Carlaw? Why don't you mention the republicans that voted yes for obamacare? Their votes are the ones that wre needed to pass the legislation. Third, CharlesK, how can you blame Obamacare for the ioncrease in your insurance premium when it does not take affect until 2014? You need to get your facts straight and question your employer or your insurance provider. Third, askwhy, the legislators who voted no are not against the lake. They are against voting on a proposal that they received 30 minutes prior to a session.

To be serious for a moment: the condition of the lake really should be at the top of everyone's list (rep or dem) it is a no brainer.. it is vital to our well being in many ways.

Instead of blaming legislators, why don't you people call Senator Young and Senator Goodell and ask why this was delivered to the legislature just before the meeting? I don't think legislators are against the lake, dems or r's. I think receiving information last minute, from what it sounds like to me,is very suspicious of bad intentions. If they wanted it to pass, why didn't Senator Young and Assemblyman Goodell attend the meeting to express the intentions of the bill? If it were clearly stated in the bill, as Assemblyman Goodell states in the article, I highly doubt there would have been any questions. This was a bipartisan decision, don't make it political, Carlaw. By the way...weren't you a legislator? What would you have done in this situation? When something is last minute(to force a decision),and it smells fishy...it usually is.
