Jones concerned over HB123
There is certainly nothing wrong with that stated purpose, and I know that he means well.
However, when one reads House Bill 123, it is apparent that the bill does something vastly different from setting up a study group. In fact, the bill does not even require the lake authority to issue a report.
The powers this bill would grant the proposed lake authority cause me and many others great concern. This bill should amended to make the lake authority a "study only" commission. We should study this "objectively" and gather public input before acting.
