The National Conference of State Legislatures' Grasscatcher blog, being a good sport, links to a Paul Rolly column looking at how legislators in Utah and other red states are thinking about pulling out of NCSL due to their conviction that the group leans left:
Several dozen Utah legislators attended the NCSL convention in Philadelphia last week and were enraged at the "liberal" positions adopted by the body.
The NCSL passed resolutions supporting health-care reform and cap-and-trade legislation, as well as a number of measures backed by labor unions.
Utah wasn't the only conservative delegation upset with the direction of the NCSL, legislative sources say. Oklahoma and Texas, and a number of delegates from Virginia, showed open hostility toward the liberal tendencies of the organization.
One source said the NCSL always has leaned toward the left, but this year revealed a more blatant liberal agenda than past years.
