  • Yes, they should be fined.

  • Yes - ethics investigations and pay deductions, along with a required special session to last as long as their little field trip AND any days spent dealing with the repercussions so they can't use it to bury other legislation they don't like, too.

  • Well, depending on the rules, I suggest firing them. They refused to do their job. That seems to me to be a breach of contract or at least breaking the public trust.

  • It will depnd on the law of course, but imo I think they should be the very least face ethics charges.
