Episode 10 – Is It Better To Do Something versus Nothing?

Episode 10

Is it better to do something versus nothing? Can you do more harm than good by a poorly thought out action than by sitting on the sidelines? That is the topic we’ll be covering tonight.

Larry and Andy are discussing if there is some level of harm that can be done by taking action prematurely rather than waiting. An example of this is filing a challenge before there is sufficient evidence to support it. Waiting might produce other challenges that would bolster the case significantly. Additionally, a bill might just die on its own moving through the legislature if it doesn’t make it through the various committees by the deadline.

They also discuss various strategies of how to work with your legislators or, at the least, not work against them.
