Scoppe: How the Legislature turned me into a tourist in my own community

BEST AS I can tell, I live about a half mile outside the Columbia city limits. I know this not because the community changes suddenly from urban to rural as I turn off the main road (in the city) onto the subdivision road (outside the city) on which my home is located. Rather, it’s by looking at the trash and recycling bins that my neighbors put out on the curb on trash day. In fact, on a couple of occasions when I’ve ridden my bicycle through the neighborhood on a trash-day morning, I’ve found myself weaving in and out of the city repeatedly, as I turn from street to street.
