Does my inaction make me look bad?

An article in today's Deseret Morning News says that the Senate is struggling with HB101. This is the bill about lobbyist gift limits and disclosure. Senate President John Valentine is quoted in the article as saying he doesn't know if there would be any action on this issue this session. In my opinion, not acting on a piece of legislation is just as bad as voting against legislation that should be passed. As I've said before, if the perception of the constituents is that lobbyists have more influence then they do, (recent surveys indicate constituents believe this) drastic changes MUST be made.
