The fact that she has not had a hearing or been confirmed for almost 2 years is ludicrous and a symptom of the backward Neanderthals running our state legislature. Just have a hearing, and vote: Yes or No and get it done. What are they gaining by delaying? It just points out their sub-moronic mentality.

Last year they said they had to wait till the 60 day session in 2013 to hold confirmation hearings. I don't remember what their excuse was during the 60 day session in 2011.

What it sounds like to me is that the dems see some political liability in having to actaully vote on her confirmation, and have made the cowardly decision to string her out.

Probably don't have time since there are submitting so many goofy bills and wasting time discussing memorials and resolutions. By the time they're done there won't be time to confirm her - again.

This is them flexing their muscle since a Rep hired her and letting Gov Martinez know they they don't care for bipartisanship. You're right, they are cowards.
