State Senator Serrano on "Going Through the Motions"

On politics blog Room Eight, State Senator Jose M. Serrano writes about the frustrations of being in the minority party.

"Being a Democrat dooms my legislation before it is even conceived," he says. "Once a bill of mine gets introduced, it goes to committee where it waits for a vote. And waits. And waits. And waits."

"No rule exists that requires committees to take vote on a piece of legislation. Thus, it is almost a certainty that Democratic bills will go through an entire legislative session without one minute of substantive public debate or discussion. Then they die."

More here. And here's a list of Serrano's Room Eight posts, going back to 2006.

On a side note, does anyone know of other Bronx politicians who blog?
