Former Senator Dole on NPR

Former Senator Bob Dole was on Morning Edition yesterday talking about his new book. The interviewer asked him about plans to scramble the rules in the US Senate in order to weaken the minority Democratic Party and push through judicial nominees. Senator Dole suggested that Republican lawmakers should tread very carefully. The rules protecting ensuring a voice for the minority party are very important.

Several other important topics need to be covered here. In the coming days expect to see more about Community Development Block Grants (CDBGs) and developments with the sudden halt to a small town school construction project that leaves the students worse off than when the project started.
