Some Legislators Take a Break on Golf Outing With Lobbyists

Lobbyist and one of the  “Chipper” crowd,  Jim Dunlap, defends the trip.

Jerry Bohnen, KTOK 1000 reports:

“It’s my weekend, it’s their weekend,” says lobbyist in his defense.

While the State House and State Senate adjourn a day early, some

legislators are complaining it’s meant to help a handful of legislators so they can take a Tucson, Arizona golf trip along with lobbyists Jim Dunlap and Pat Hall.

State Representative Mike Reynolds questions the trip. “We haven’t had any budget bills on the floor of the house yet and Thursday is supposed to be the last day to hear Senate bills in the House–that’s a hard deadline.”
The issue was raised late Tuesday night on the House floor by Representative Randy Terrill.  Asked about the trip, lobbyist Jim Dunlap told KTOK’s Calvin Wright,
“Is anybodygoing on vacation? Are you going on vacation this weekend? Well, are you going home and rest in the yard? That’s what we’re gonna do.”
