    • On January 10, 2013, by molonlabe - Setting up a commission to make a report on the effects of slavery on society is completely unnecessary and should not be a function of government. This project has a budget of $8,000,000! If this bill were to become law, each of the seven members of this commission would make more than $100,000 a year. Cronyism at it's finest.
