The million things that fill up a day...

State Rep. Mark Cohen periodically provides brief summaries of legislation under consideration in the PA House. The latest batch give a good sense of the amazing minutiae of a legislator's life -- not so many bold policy statements, but instead small tweaks to everything from taxes on wireless phone service to regulations for farming of antlered animals.

Lots of head-scratchers in this list (for the average layman), but also recognizable small bits on helping the families of deployed servicemen, regulating the provision of long-term care, fishing licenses, and the settling of a variety of small property and oversight or regulatory disputes. Remarkable that anybody can keep on top of it all.
