Rep. Pine’s – recall debate on the American flag rights Part 1


THIS GOES BEYOND CLOTHESLINES HERE.    EWA BY GENTRY CHARGES THE HOMEOWNER AN “UP FRONT” FEE TO FLY THE FLAG OF $100.00 THAT GOES WITH THE DESIGN REQUEST APPLICATION.   CAN’T THE LEGISLATURE SEE THAT A $2.95 BRACKET AT A HARDWARE STORE TO ERECT THE FLAG COSTS THE HOMEOWNER $100.00 UP FRONT JUST TO GET APPROVAL TO AFFIX THAT $2.95 BRACKET TO THE HOUSE TO HOLD THE FLAG? 

DOESN’T THIS CHARGE SEEM EXORBITANT AND RISE TO THE LEGISLATURE’S CALLING PER HB2311 TO REIGN IN ON THE SAME PREMISE-  THAT MEMBERS ARE DETERRED FROM FLYING THE FLAG BECAUSE OF THE UNREASONABLE FEE(S) IMPOSED AND THUS THE LEGISLATURE- using HB2311 as the vehicle for remedy-  SET A STANDARD FOR THE COST TO ERECT THE FLAG AS THEY DID FOR PHOTOCOPYING? i say waive the fee on the flag- should be exempt from fees imposed- still turn in a design request for approval to meet proper confines- but the charge to fly the flag could be exempted by the Legislature here using this bill.  

IN 2007- SB921- BECAME ACT 241 ON JULY 7, 2007
