Showdown at the House Well Corral Thursday
The Tennessee House of Representatives will take up the collective bargaining bill Thursday:
"They (the Democrats) know that when the bill comes up, that we will have to substite and conform to the Senate bill because it was passed ahead of our version. Those are our rules, and those are rules they (Democrats) are familiar with," Representative Maggart, the House Republican Caucus Chairman, told The Examiner in an interview at the weekend. "I have every intention of fighting to insure that the final bill is amended to include the changes that have been made in the House during the [legislative] process." Maggart added that whatever version is finally agreed on by both the House and Senate, a bill such as 130/113 making it as far as it has is proof that things are changing in Nashville.
