< Health Care Veto! | Main | Big votes on the education bill >

Looks like it's gonna get ugly

Posted at 7:11 PM on May 13, 2008 by Michael Marchio

Speaker Kelliher just gaveled the House back from recess, and Rep. Seifert moved to reject HF6, the education finance bill that the House was debating this morning. He made an appeal to lawmakers not to torpedo budget negotiations by passing big pieces of legislation before the "global deal" is in place. He said it's headed for a veto, just like the health care bill, if they pass it. His move to reject it was, atypically, followed by no statement from the other side of the aisle, and they went straight to a vote. The move to reject the bill failed, 45 to 86, so we're gonna get a vote on this.
