Daily Freeman: NY Sen. Terry Gipson wants end to middle-of-night voting by state lawmakers


    This week the Daily Freeman covered the momentum being gained by my Vampire Voting Act:

    ALBANY, N.Y. — A bill to ban vampires is advancing in the state Legislature, but the only creatures of the night it targets are senators and assemblymen.

    Sen. Terry Gipson’s bill, known as the Vampire Voting Act of 2013, would prohibit votes on bills between 9 p.m. and 9 a.m. The freshman Democrat from Rhinebeck says he introduced the measure out of frustration with the Legislature scheduling votes for the middle of the night, when most constituents are asleep.
