    1. It is a state to state agreement it is not a new national law so there is no reason not to sign it in fact for those who are PRAYING for a smaller Federal Government after the 2016 election this bill is actually a great thing it shows that individual states can make state by state decisions and still work together thru various announcements over common areas of agreement. The bill does not require all states to participate it simply says that all those that do can band together and create a common language that all parties can agree to and understand.

    2. My Senator, Jeff Merkley, D- Oregon, has already told me he won’t support the bill because it would “give up” state control. I guess he is fine with denying the convenience to his constituents that this bill would give them. My convenience will be to vote for the other guy next election.

      1. And your reply is exactly correct. This business about giving up control is BS plain and simple. It gives up nothing, all it does is have every State recognize every other State’s permit, nothing more or less.
