From the "Credit where it's due…" file.

While the timidity of the substantial Democratic majority in Olympia has been pretty frustrating this session, they got this one right...
The Legislature today approved a measure that would restore the voting rights of offenders once they are out of prison, off probation and making a good-faith effort to pay their fines.
Now if we could find a way to stop producing so many felons in the first place. Drug law reform (where reform = repeal, mostly) seems like a productive starting point.
