A proposed amendment to the state constitution would require candidates for governor and lieutenant governor to run as a ticket, just as the president and vice president do. Senators debated the measure but set it aside Tuesday.
Senate Democrats have ended their filibuster of a workplace discrimination bill, after an agreement was reached with the bill’s sponsor. But that doesn’t mean they won’t try blocking the bill again.
Democrat Maria Chappelle-Nadal agreed to end the filibuster after the bill’s sponsor, GOP Senator Brad Lager, allowed her to add an amendment – that amendment would guarantee the right to a jury trial in all workplace discrimination cases. She says, though, that the bill’s definition of what constitutes workplace discrimination is still flawed.
