Hobbs is a Republican backbencher who drew legislative notice mostly for negative reasons. She hated the idea of providing continuing state help to cover the costs of tests for people seeking high school equivalency diplomas.
She also famously suggested that if the woman who cleaned her house would just put in some more work she could pay for her child's health insurance without resorting to the government-financed ARKids program.
I thought Curtis Coleman already had nailed down the vote from those who like this sort of thinking. He better gear up.
