The House of Delegates yesterday killed a bill regarding “wind energy drying devices.”
Sounds fancy–until you realize that a “wind energy drying device” is, essentially, a clothesline.
First, delegates amended the bill to make it apply only to community associations in Northern Virginia.
That prompted Del. Bobby Orrock, R-Caroline, to join the debate.
Orrock said the policy should be uniform statewide and not apply just in Northern Virginia.
He said that in some areas in his district, “they have strung clotheslines from tree to tree to tree.”
Orrock earned himself some groans by adding that if the bill passed, Northern Virginia homeowners would “start screaming, ‘This looks like a West Virginia subdivision.'”
Will someone — anyone — please announce that they are running against this buffoon?
