This blog seems to consist almost entirely of fluff.

I wonder, does this mean that state legislatures are largely superfluous except when it comes to passing a budget?

A more specific query: how does the state of New Hampshire work with a huge(424 members) unpaid volunteer legislature with an average age of 60?

I understand the legislature has a small (numbers?) professional staff. My cynical suspicion is that the legislators are largely window-dressing and the real authority lies with the professional staff, the Governor's office and lobbyists.

I'd like to be wrong.
