An the Beat Goes On...
Many members of the caucus are angry that a bill to remove the state sales tax from groceries has not been brought back to try for another vote. The bill failed on a procedural vote last Tuesday and the Black Caucus has been slowing things down since that vote. Some are even questioning whether the Republican Caucus is serious about coming up with a compromise on the tax bill that can be voted on and out of the House.
Today's adventure in filibustering has gone on for more than an hour today. The Alabama Legislature is working a three-day week, and they'll be in session today, Wednesday and Thursday.
