House litmus test

Posted By on Wed, Mar 18, 2009 at 5:19 PM

That Republican bill to screw minimum wage workers out of some of their pay  by allowing more "company store" charges on their backs failed in the House today, 42 for to 39 against.

It's one of those sheeps-and-goats roll calls.

John Williams wrote about this bill yesterday.

Speaking of John, he has a report on vice activities today. Nix on restrictions on fruity "alcopop." Yes for around-the-clock booze sales at race tracks. Yes for a cigarette tax break for the city of Marion.
