Another Annual Ritual: Hear Our Bills or We Won't Hear Yours!

State Senate Majority Leader Michael Sanchez just threw down the gauntlet to the House.

If you don't start hearing more Senate bills, we'll stop hearing House bills.

It's not unusual to hear such threats from one chamber or another at this point in the session.

Sanchez said he'd heard that a House committee chairman was threatening to hold all Senate bills until a certain House bill is heard in the Senate.

At the outset of today's floor session Sanchez said the House had passed 7 Senate bills while the Senate had passed the same number of House bills.
