Batty Legislation. Apparently assemblyman Lloyd Levine's office began promoting his Vampire Slayer Act of 2006 on Friday, Sarah Michelle Gellar's birthday (reg req).
"Assemblyman Lloyd Levine's office began promoting his Vampire Slayer Act of 2006 on Friday, which seemed like perfect timing: It also was the birthday of Sarah Michelle Gellar, the actress who played Buffy, the vampire slayer, on the hit television show.
Instead of regulating use of Gilroy garlic, the bill requires appliance makers to label how much energy their products consume while in standby mode. Appliances that drain energy while inactive are dubbed "vampires."
It was one of the first bills highlighted by new Levine communications director Alex Traverso, who's leaving Assembly Speaker Fabian Núñez's press office.
Will Traverso advise his new boss to show up in committee wearing a Dracula costume?
"He is a pretty flashy dresser, but I don't know if he'd go in with a cape with a popped collar and slick his hair back," Traverso said. "But I wouldn't put it past him. Last year, he asked members to bark 'aye' " for a canine-related bill."
