Unintended consequences

Sometimes one law is one too many.
Last November the wonderful people of Colorado approved Amendment 41. This amendment prohibits members of government from receiving any gift more than $50. Since this went into effect, there has been somewhat of a conflagration amongst state workers. Professors at our state universities are wondering if they can accept gifts from visiting dignitaries. To reject the gift might break several rules of etiquette. State workers are also wondering if their kids can receive scholarships to attend college.
At least we will have ended the almost daily occurrence of lawmakers receiving bribes. Now, what can we do about ticket-fixing?
That is all.
