An Easter lesson for our government
Friday, April 5 marks a very important hurdle for legislation in both the House and Senate chambers as it is the second “funnel”. This means legislation (outside of tax and spending bills) must be voted out of their respective committees by that deadline in order to “stay alive” for the session. With that being said, this week was extremely busy for all legislators as we were scrambling to get key bills past this self-imposed deadline.
While we are still within the wake of the Easter holiday, I thought it would be appropriate to share an important lesson for government that comes from Easter, particularly the story behind Good Friday.
Good Friday highlights the world’s most famous trial: the trial of Jesus Christ. Although this trial took place 2000 years ago, its effects are still realized to this day. Here we have a situation where the ruling Roman governor of the region, Pontius Pilate, has the power and authority to judge, to grant freedom, or to sentence death.
