The legislature speaks on Ukraine

The legislature speaks on Ukraine
Arkansas News Headlines

Ukraine opened the legislative day today with resolutions in the House and Senate condemning the Russian invasion of Ukraine.

The Senate, after going into committee of the whole to hear from a Ukrainian, adopted SR 33, one of a batch of Ukraine-related resolutions introduced in both houses. This one, however, was a product of bipartisan agreement and carried the sponsorship of 34 senators, lacking only Sen. Trent Garner. Garner had a couple of resolutions on file, including one blaming the invasion on Democratic presidents.

The House passed HR 1035, with a similar message.

Some other resolutions are pending, including one added to tomorrow’s calendar urging the restart of the Keystone XL pipeline, which is a Republican-popular reference though it would have little to no impact if it ever was built on U.S. energy independence. (The U.S., by the way is somewhere in the neighborhood of 90 percent capable of producing energy it needs and is a net exporter of petroleum products.)
