It Again Comes Down To The Senate

April 6, 2011

With a resolution from the Senate allowing the chambers to reconvene to take up redistricting should a deal be reached, it is very likely that the House will add their original redistricting plan to it and send it back to the Senate. Republicans have been very loud in their disdain for the House leaderships plans to transform the resolution from its original intent.

Whether or not this is germane probably depends on what you think about the House map, but the likely outcome is this: it will again be up to the Senate to accept or kill any resolution with the House map. The Senate did this a couple weeks ago by a 29-18 vote. The question becomes, can they do it again?

Here is the roll call of how the Senate voted earlier.

    On a different subject, why hasn’t this site commented on Barbour’s speech where he pimped for global warming. When he did that, he disqualified himself for ANY office.

      Feel free to post any links. I simply don’t have the time or energy to focus on everything I’d like to.

    The president doesn’t have to recognize anyone for the motion to concur/not concur. It could die on the calendar.
