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.

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.
