The Workers Comp reform bill favored by Democrats as a way to cut costs for business at the expense of doctors and hospitals didn’t pass two nights ago.
On the last night of the spring session, however, enough votes were mustered to reach 60 votes.
In fact, there were two extra votes.
The May 31, 2011, roll call is below:
There were no changes in State Rep. Jack Franks’ vote. He was still a “Yes.”
His Republican colleague continued to vote against the bill. State Rep. Mark Beaubien was not on the House floor. Beaubien voted “No” the first time around.
