I’ve been following the progress of the Senate bill (a constitutional amendment) calling for a 2/3 vote to be necessary to increase some taxes. This bill to pass needed a 2/3 vote it fell only 2 votes short in the State Senate on the 15th of April. Sounds like it will be brought back up next week. A link below to “Republican Rants” which had an excellent piece on it with facts galore.
I’ve been trying to find out something about the bills future.
Then LO and BEHOLD I received this email out of the blue.
