On January 23, 1968, President Lyndon B. Johnson submitted a comprehensive occupational health and safety bill to Congress. Led by the United States Chamber of Commerce and the National Association of Manufacturers, the legislation was widely opposed by business. Many labor leaders, including the leadership of the AFL-CIO, did not fight for the legislation, claiming workers had little interest in the bill. The legislation died in committee.
here. The republicans will still have a clear majority in the Michigan house when the new legislature takes seat.
I saw the movie "There will be Blood". Pretty gritty movie and sure enough, there was blood. Right after the bloody scene, a couple of old ladies walked out. If they say there will be blood, BELIEVE THEM.
Can't we just turn Congress off and then turn it back on again?
Everyone is recognizing that this legislation was being absolutely rushed through in the 11th hour of this session....because of the change in the House. Otherwise, there would be no reason to rush it through, since, under your scenario, it still would be passed next session.
