Not because this last-minute amendment to a passed bill to let state Rep. Wayne Christian (an allegedly conservative Republican) rebuild his beach house on Ike-swept Bolivar Penninsula is particularly unusual. But because, in fact, this is just the sort of thing that gets smuggled into law in the last "chaotic" days of every biennial session. The last days are always "chaotic" because the Lege likes them that way. So much easier to slip stuff through when there’s so much going on that no one is likely to notice until it’s too late. Heh.
