Republicans unable to shut down debate on ethics bill

Republicans failed to shut off debate Tuesday afternoon on a bill that would stop the state from deducting dues for organizations such as the Alabama Education Association from state paychecks.
Democrats have delayed on Tuesday to keep the bill, which they believe would hurt the AEA and the Alabama State Employees Association, from coming up for a vote. They have said the bill is politically motivated and does not belong in the current special session on ethics.
Republicans have said that state resources should not be used to collect dues from organizations that are politically active.
