The French-born American historian Jacques Barzun was famously quoted as saying, “Whoever wants to know the heart and minds of America had better know baseball, the rules and realities of the game.” Barzun could have drawn a similar parallel between baseball and a legislative session; both are predictably unpredictable. Both impose certain rules of play and conduct. It is the unpredictability of what happens during the game that makes things interesting. This legislative session certainly fits into the category of “predictably unpredictable.” Let’s not forget that weather can also have a profound impact on the outcome of a baseball game and a legislative session.
Opening day this year featured Governor Mary Fallin throwing out the first pitch with her third State of the State Address. As is customary, the address was an opportunity to draw attention to the governor’s legislative and budgetary priorities for the coming session. Her game strategy included reform to the current workers’ compensation system, tax reform, and funding for repairs to state infrastructure.
