Victory? Or another payday lending bill?

Posted By on Wed, Mar 14, 2007 at 4:12 PM

Benny Petrus' ethics bill passed the House 89-3 today. Jason Willett doesn't swing much stick in the House. But I'm haunted here by the 90 votes Rep. David Johnson got on his payday lending bill, promptly squashed in the Senate. Is this but another cheap score for House members who know they can count on the Senate to do whatever dirty deed is required?
