Montana Rep. Kristen Hansen’s pro-discrimination bill, HB516 was pulled from second reading today and referred back to committee with a 44-4 vote on the Senate floor.

    Does anybody know why? I’m so curious.

      JGirl asks a good question. Is it possible that all the bad publicity, lousy polls and plummeting public opinion of the GOP controlled legislature is actually, finally, resulting in some responsible votes? Seems unlikely but how else do you explain this? Are Montana Republicans starting to worry about the 2012 elections? Any insights out there?

  2. Looks like they struck the text: “resolution, or policy”

    Back to Da House…

    The resolution or policy was struck in the Local Gov committee already. I believe that was on 3/14 during the committee hearing, and it went to the Senate that way.

    I was in a meeting yesterday and didn’t get a chance to listen to the Senate, so I have no idea what happened, and nobody else seems to be saying.

  4. I can only guess because I can’t find any substansive informatoin anywhere. What I do know is that at least three conservative groups are engaged in letter writing campaigns asking our State legislators what the hell they think they are doing (I am involved in one of those campaigns). The letters basically remind these idiots that they are in power right now to get some very specific things done and if they can’t, we will find someone who will – even if that means turning to our Montana Democrats.
