For Immediate Release
March 7, 2017
The following statement is attributed to Senate Democratic Leader Anthony Hensley:
“Today’s debate on the Governor’s tax plan is just another exercise in futility and a clear indication the Senate President and Majority Leader do not have a plan of their own. Until they realize that they need a bipartisan coalition of 27 votes to pass a tax plan, the political gridlock and games will continue.
“I call upon the President and Majority Leader to stop making the Governor relevant and to start working with Senators in both caucuses to pass a tax plan with 27 votes.”
