Every winter, we read through the pre-filed bills to be introduced in the state General Assembly and spot a few that seem destined to die a noble death in committee. Sometimes lawmakers introduce bills just to make a statement, like Sen. Larry Grooms’ sure-to-fail bill (S. 31) that calls for a constitutional convention of the states to ban gay marriage. This year we found one we actually liked: H. 3110, co-sponsored by Reps. Mia McLeod, Walton McLeod, and Gilda Cobb-Hunter. The bill would require public schools to “provide a high-quality education allowing each student to reach his highest potential,” overturning an infamous state Supreme Court ruling that requires the state to provide a “minimally adequate” education. Surely, our legislators will pass it.
