At least that’s what Rep. Deb Eddy and a couple of her colleague think. That’s why they’ve offered up House Bill 1630. The bill would make school workers turn out the lights when the party’s over, or when they leave the building. Yes, force them to turn out the lights under penalty of…God knows what. I didn’t read that far in the bill.

One wonders what sort of event inspired such a bill. Perhaps it was a night time drive past a school building that had the lights on.

This particular bill was brought to my attention by a semi-retired lobbyist whose only remark was “Daaaaaa!” (I think that’s a variant spelling for “Duh!”)

Here’s the full text of the bill.
