Senate Majority Leader: "Problem? What Problem?" on Transparency in Legislative Process

After introducing title-only bills (bills that say "An act relating to ..." and that's it; no substance in the bill) and passing them without public hearings, the Senate Majority leader said there was no transparency problem with the legislative process.

Thanks to Jason Mercier at the Washington Policy Center for raising this issue when no one else cared.
