How Did The Senate Vote On Term Limits?

To some in the senate it is all about them and how they can position themselves. To others it is about the will of the people. The only folks that are distrubed by term limits are under the capitol dome. If term limits is so bad, than those that dislike them need to get together, get enough signers and change it the right way, with a vote of the people.

Thanks...I had checked there but didnt know if there was a lag in reporting. I didn't see it on Tuesdays calendar upon quick inspection.

I don't know. The stakes are high for the termed out Dems, particularly in the Senate. They might be herding their minions in the House.

4. Then there are those, mostly Republicans, that oppose any change.

There is nothing surprising about this; Republicans always oppose change.

George...Thanks for the update and the report on political maneuvering. Is John Martin out of the question for Senate Prexy in the event the Dems maintain control?

They don't like getting yelled at, I suppose. Which college does Gagnon work for?

The Senate just defeated a motion by Senator Rick Bennett to indefintely postpone. Senator Gagnon argued against the postponement. Gagnon immediately filed amendment B which might be the self serving plan detailed earlier in this thread.The vote was 18 - 16 against postponement.

Purely conjecture on my part of course, but I wonder if the Martin vote was a 'message' to Gagnon saying "If I can't have the Presidency, then you aren't going to have it for 8 years either."Mayo might as well change parties.

The MMA should be on the ballot too.With the time dynamic in play, who knows if the extender supporters are going to have enough votes in the House. I think the Dems will hold and push B thru the Senate tonight.I am hitting the sack.[ 06-13-2003: Message edited by: Bob Stone ]

Re: How Did The Senate Vote On Term Limits?

I have gained a substantial amount of respect for Senator Pendleton this session. I'm not shocked that the "ladies from Androscoggin", Rotundo and Douglass, voted to attempt to lengthen their reigns under the Dome. Interesting fodder for yet another column.
