Aren't these bills often begun by students? As a way of "learning about how the system works." I heard a story on NPR a couple weeks ago about some kids in New Hampshire (or Vermont?) lobbying (eloquently) to make the apple the state fruit or something like that...

It would be interesting to know how many of these bills start with students. It didn't sound like the "official dirt" one started that way, but who knows? I can certainly see where getting a bill passed is an interesting lesson for students in civics classes. Let's just hope the time lost to those bills didn't affect other, more important legislative business.
