From the Hill
The Senate narrowly defeated an amendment on Thursday that would have established a commission to research avenues for reparing the “broken” criminal justice system after Republicans said it would encroach on statesâ€™ constitutional rights to conduct their own affairs.
Yep, this is the Webb commission that got defeated.
Texas Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison (R) echoed Coburn, calling the proposed body a vast violation of statesâ€™ rights.
â€œThis is the most massive encroachment on states’ rights I have ever seen in this body,â€ she said.
Kay Hutchison apparently has never heard of marijuana.
