Below is the House roll call on Senate Bill 1229, the legislation that will pretty much cut Governor Bruce Rauner out of the employee contract negotiation business during his first term in office.
Franks did not vote the first time around.
Reminds a bit of how State Senator Barack Obama ducked votes so many times.
The question I pose today is
“Will some Republican State Representative cave to AFSCME union pressure and vote to override Governor Rauner’s veto on Senate bill 1229?”
It could be any nervous Republican in a district with a lot of state employees, but, because State Rep. Raymond Poe, who lives just north of Springfield, wanted to be the House Republican Leader and at one point was aiming for statewide office, I’ve used his name in this story’s headline.
