Anti litter and crime bill

SB 2670 is coming up tomorrow. What that bill will do is cut down on the litter by people throwing non subscription newspapers in yards. It is also an anti crime bill because criminals see stacks of newspapers in a yard and figure the house is either empty or the owner are out of town. Ripe picking for thieves and vagrants. As amended, it will require people throwing the non subscription newspapers to put them within 2 feet of the door or in a newspaper box.

  1. Good idea! Could save someone's house from getting broken into!

    Also, would add to the aesthetics of keeping a neighborhood clean and beautiful!

  2. O wonderful!!! Another burdensome regulation on Business by "Big Brother". The News print industry is on a slippery slope and you politicians are helping push them down. Is this all that you have to do in Nashville? It took how long to kick the hippies out of legislative plaza? Now you are regulating the Kid throwing news papers, good greif.

  3. Dano - If I wanted a newspaper thrown into my yard I would ask for them to do it. There is a perfectly good mailbox at the end of my driveway for all of the other items someone would like to deliver to my house. This bill makes perfect sense and you would see it if you were to ever drive down a street on a windy/rainy day after some idiot "newspaper" dumped hundreds of pages of garbage throughout a neighborhood and watched it blow all over the place.

    1. Jim, I agree with you! This makes sense for people who care about their yards and neighborhoods!

  4. Are you for real? Is it really necessary to have the government in our lives in yet another way? Try doing something conservative. Instead of adding to our government burden--try finding a way to back the government out of, not into, our lives. I hope this fails. Not because it's a bad idea but simply because it isn't necessary.
