In a bipartisan vote, Colorado says no to addition of publicly traded renewable-energy company to state employees 401(k) retirement plans.

You heard it right!  Democrats and Republicans joined forces to defeat a resolution in the Colorado house which encouraged adding the renewable energy company to the 401k plans held by state employees.

The best line of the article which, for me, says all you need to know about resolutions even beyond the Colorado legislature, came from Rep. Joe Rice, D-Littleton, who complained that the state “passes resolutions all the time encouraging everything from going skiing to getting mammograms and that no one would run out and dump all of their money into a questionable fund just because of” this resolution.

Now, if this isn’t about the best argument for the elimination of legislative resolutions all across this great land, including the worst offenders in DC, I’d like to hear it.  But then, there’s an argument that spending time on:

  • S.Res. 389 (is) Commending The University of Alabama Crimson Tide for being unanimously declared the 2009 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision National Champions.

or

  • H.Res. 546 (ih) Recognizing the historical significance of Juneteenth Independence Day, and expressing the sense of the House of Representatives that history should be regarded as a means for understanding the past and more effectively facing the challenges of the future.

actually keeps Congress from doing more damage than they are already have.
