Last week, City Council was to consider a new ordinance to impose more regulations on Houston auto repair shops. Pages and pages of new regulations. Instead, the measure was sent back to the mayor’s office.
Marc Campos says the votes weren’t there in spite of Mayor Parker’s insistence that it should be thought of as a consumer protection ordinance. On the plus side, Campos noted:
For many of the speakers, this was obviously the first time they had ever attended a City Council meeting. I don’t know if this how City Hall should go about engaging folks into the political process. This is one that has the potential to come and bite folks on the arse.
