Last week Kevin Landrigan described the motivation behind Speaker O’Brien introducing new legislation for the House to consider. No surprise, it’s political: fire up the GOP base and keep pressure on Gov. Lynch.
Today, Landrigan follows up on that point by reminding us that the Senate would also have to agree to take up the bills for them to become law — and Senate Republican leaders seem disinclined to do so.
Unless that posture changes, O’Brien’s leadership can make a lot of noise and provide plenty of cover to its GOP caucus members that they’re all on the job and trying to make corrections on the fly.
But actual results? Right now, it looks as if they may not amount to much.
