Very interesting as you can see many staunch Republican water boys (as it were) for the Right have bowed to the constituent pressure. Maybe for now at least.
The second issue du-jour is the HB1496, right to work union busting bill. This result too is very interesting and I wonder how many of these usual union buster supporters votes would be changed if it were the beginning of the first session and the mills were not in such dire straits. As my Verizon buddy said last P.M. when he stopped by, "We work to a standard, not the clock and some people don't get that". Nice. Thanks Brian, good American work ethic and conscious of quality, safety, local long term job security and good craftsmanship. Now, your roll call. The question was to ITL; 255-85, killed.
Yeas; Buco, Buzzell, Chandler, S. Eaton, King, McCleod, Mears, Merrick, Morneau, Remick, H. Richardson, Stohl, Theberge, Tholl, J. Ward.

Hopefully the shock of it will send him into early retirement.
It's rumored that he's going to run for speaker again.
