Update on the legislative emasculate-the-attorney-general effort

There never was any real danger that the Legislature would emasculate the attorney general; even if House Speaker Bobby Harrell’s friends had managed to get their legislation to do that through the House, the Senate wouldn’t have gone along. That was obvious from to me from the moment I read H.5072 and H.5073, but Senate President Pro Tempore John Courson made a point of pointing that out to me when I was visiting the upper chamber last week.
