State Senators Want More Influence Over U.S. Senators

State Senators Want More Influence Over U.S. Senators; KCPW

The Utah Senate wants to have more of a say over the state’s elected officials in the U.S. Senate. Republican Senator Howard Stephenson’s bill would allow political parties to consult with the Legislature about current office holders and candidates, specifically about their actions on states’ rights issues. This morning, he said this would make U.S. Senators pay more attention to the legislature.

That would have as much effect as passing a law saying "you must not cheat", or "you may not carry guns here", etc... in other words if the intended subject would obey it, you wouldn't have needed it in the first place.

They attempt to satisfy those who sign their paycheck. In the case of the senate, that would be "the people" (AKA ACORN's dead voters). The state legislature signed the paychecks of senators initially, so that's who the senator tried to satisfy. No mystery, the 17th stole that power.
