No end in sight

The money-chas­ing tra­di­tion in the lead-up to the ses­sion — and through­out the rest of the year, too — is un­likely to stop any time soon.

Even Jenne rec­og­nizes it’s part of the re­al­ity of the Leg­is­la­ture. He is spon­sor­ing a bill to ap­ply the Leg­is­la­ture’s ban on ses­sion fundrais­ing to the gov­er­nor and Cab­i­net but isn’t sure how far it will go this year.

Jenne is run­ning to be House Demo­cratic Leader in 2020, a po­si­tion that would re­quire him to help raise money for fel­low Demo­cratic House mem­bers, so he said he might have to drop his pledge not to ask for cam­paign money dur­ing the weeks be­fore the ses­sion when law­mak­ers hold com­mit­tee meet­ings.

“That’s al­ways go­ing to be a prob­lem, and it’s al­ways go­ing to be up to the in­di­vid­ual whether or not they jump through hoops for that money,” Jenne said.
