Trump has no Subutai and is unlikely to get one

Mon, 27 Mar 2017 11:12:10 +0000

On twitter the other day, I injected myself into a conversation: These people thought they were going to ride into D.C. like Genghis Khan and now they have no idea what to do: — Daniel Schultz (@pastordan) March 26, 2017 @pastordan Genghis Khan kind of made it up as he went along too. — […]

Seven Years Ago Today: Vote for Obamacare in the House

Tue, 21 Mar 2017 23:42:11 +0000

My old health care posts are suddenly relevant again. Seven years ago, on March 21, 2010, the House passed Obamacare. I had a post on the subject which reflected  a number of my thoughts following the more or less year long debate that led up to the passage of that legislation. As I said at […]

Trumpcare Plan and CBO Score Released

Tue, 14 Mar 2017 00:47:22 +0000

Healthcare in America feels like an eternal struggle, both in terms of settling on a policy goal and in terms of actually getting healthcare when you’re sick. I’m a small business owner and so, in terms of healthcare, not much better than being self-employed. My options prior to the ACA were not great. I’ve never […]

SB 121: Adverse Possession for Non-Profits

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 01:23:21 +0000

Sen. Koch has introduced SB 121 regarding adverse possession. Adverse possession is a somewhat odd but venerable concept in real estate law that essentially says that if you use someone else’s real estate long enough and they let you, it becomes yours.  One can imagine, in days of yore, an absentee landowner with vast tracts […]

HB 1039: Right-of-Way in a Roundabout

Thu, 09 Mar 2017 00:22:49 +0000

The bill title sounds like it could make a good movie or book title for some reason. But I digress. The Senate is considering Rep. Torr’s HB 1039 on second reading. It’s part of the Carmelization of our roadways and governs the right of way in roundabouts. (I see that the legislation does away with […]

The Legislative Services Agency Turns 50

Mon, 06 Mar 2017 20:36:57 +0000

The Indiana Law Blog has a post noting that LSA is having a celebration of its 50th anniversary tomorrow (March 7). Marcia was there at its founding in 1967 (and worked for its predecessor). Its creation came during a time of legislative reform generally. The agency is nonpartisan and is responsible for drafting legislation, calculating […]

Another Study: Vouchers are not improving education

Wed, 01 Mar 2017 16:27:33 +0000

A new study out of Stanford concludes that voucher programs do not improve educational outcomes. (Unfortunately, I read this immediately after reading a piece that said contrary evidence will cause ideologically committed people to adhere even more firmly to their factually unsupported beliefs. So, maybe I’m doing more harm than good by sharing the Standford […]

Who Should Bear the Cost of Public Records?

Mon, 27 Feb 2017 17:14:33 +0000

The Indiana Law Blog has a post discussing legislation that imposes a fee for public records searches and an editorial by the South Bend Tribune critical of that legislation. The fees in question at this time have to do with paying for time spent by public employees compiling and reviewing responsive documents. Either way you […]

“School Choice” is like diverting money from parks to backyard swingsets and calling it “recreational choice”

Sun, 26 Feb 2017 18:32:53 +0000

There is more to the “public” part of public schools than merely government funding. It denotes a population with a common interest. We are not merely a collection of individuals, workers, consumers, or taxpayers. The concept of citizens and the public are closely aligned. Public education isn’t important merely because it serves the public, it […]

On Historical Perspective and Political Discussion

Sat, 25 Feb 2017 15:19:08 +0000

It’s difficult to talk to someone about how things are if you don’t share, or at least recognize, their understanding of how things have been. Anyone who has been reading this blog for very long will probably have stumbled across me ranting about the “kids these days” genre of social aggrievement. (I happen to think […]
