Butcher’s Horse Slaughter Bill Back to the House Floor Wednesday, with Amendments

by jhwygirl

Will Rep. Ed Butcher accept them? He’s said “no” – let’s see if he keeps his word.

Tomorrow should be what some of us might call a Popcorn Floor Session. Butcher can be quite entertaining in full action – and tomorrow will almost undoubtedly maintain that predictability.

Rep. Mary Caferro of Helena is bringngi forth two amendments (one and two), while Rep. Tim Furey, of Missoula brings forth a third amendment. They’re all geared towards addressing the Governor’s concerns – and, as a bonus – Rep. Caferro has added a clause that requires that the facilities first hire Montana workers at the standard prevailing wage.

You GO Mary CaferrO!

Here’s some information on what the term ‘standard prevailing wage’ means.

HB418 has been addressed numerous times both here and at here.

Should Butcher accept the amendments? I highly recommend you contact your representatives in the House -whether they’re Republican or Democrat – and let them know what you think.

The House floor vote is 1 p.m. Wednesday. HB418 is first up.

You can contact your representative by calling the legislative information desk at 406-444-4800 and leaving a message for up to 5 legislators. If you aren’t sure who your legislator is, go to this page, which has a few helpful links, including a nifty interactive legislative district map that’ll help you figure out who to contact and ho.
