#ncga: Take your wife to work?

Senator Jerry Tillman is an interesting bird to watch.  He’s got a “campaign office” 80 miles or so outside the boundaries of his district — on a Raleigh golf course. He’s quite passionate about dumping our tax dollars on the money-bleeding, highly-wasteful and suspect solar energy industry.  He introduced a school construction bill that completely screws over HALF of his districtunfortunately, the Moore County half.

Now he’s introduced a quite peculiar bill that appears to be tailored to a very specific situation.  Senate Bill 626 allows the “spouse” of a superintendent to work in the local school board office.  Now WHY would that be so important to the gentleman from Randolph that he felt so inclined to sponsor this legislation?
