It was a move that infuriated one ethics-reform minded legislator. Currently, Utah and Oregon are the only states that require legislators to vote — with no option to abstain — even if they have a major conflict of interest. HR2 would allow abstaining.

Then the whole House Rules Committee ducked its duty by hiding behind a technicality and adjourning before they could vote House Resolution 2 up or down. Thus the lie was given to the argument that our political leaders can’t already find a way out of the kitchen when they can’t stand the heat. Rep.
