Alas, not a peep. Maybe later, but not on this particular vote.
Instead the Senate passed by a unanimous 37-0 tally, a revision to the Natural Resources and Environmental Protection Act. This is the act that, among other things, encouraged children to monitor the air pressure of school bus tires, to clean the coils of refrigerators and freezers, to caulk around and place plastic on windows, and to lower water heater temperatures by one degree all in the pursuit of an enlightened "Green" rating.
After-gym showers got uncomfortably cold after each member of Mrs. Smith's overcrowded 3rd grade class took a crack at the heater's dial.
