Estate tax/min. wage bill fails

Posted By on Fri, Aug 4, 2006 at 8:55 AM

The legislation that tied a federal minimum wage hike to an estate tax cut failed in the U.S. Senate last night by four votes.

U.S. Sen. Blanche Lincoln was one of only four Democrats to vote in support of the measure. U.S. Sen. Mark Pryor voted against it.
