The Secret of Ron’s Success?
Floor Leader Ron Richard has had remarkable success in advancing difficult legislative items through the Senate. In years past there would be frustration that tough pieces would be given hours of debate only to vanish for weeks. Richard has made his intentions clear and then powered through to their conclusion.
Perhaps some credit goes to Bill “Big Chief” Kenney? Kenney was the Republican’s first majority floor leader a decade ago when they took control of the chamber. It’s said that Kenney, now on the Public Service Commission, sat down with Richard before session to lend his experience.
