This particular news article was about a local TX board's vote on reparations but this debate question is for ALL levels of government. Within the article, the officials later stated they did not read the resolution before voting... the same thing we (too often) hear from lawmakers / bills in Washington.
Do you believe that elected officials should be required to read what they are voting on?
(P.S. If you wish to debate the pros/cons on reparations please start a new debate.)
