CAPITOL CLOUT
(2008-03-17)
(wgvu) - MICHIGAN DEMOCRATS SWEPT INTO POWER IN THE
STATE HOUSE AFTER THE 2006 ELECTION FOR THE FIRST TIME IN A DECADE
WITH BIG PLANS.
BUT THEY ARE GROWING MORE FRUSTRATED THAT MANY OF THEIR
PROPOSALS ARE STALLED IN THE REPUBLICAN-LED SENATE.
REPUBLICAN LEADERS SAY THEY WON'T MOVE THE BILLS BECAUSE THEY
DON'T HELP THE STRUGGLING ECONOMY. HOUSE DEMOCRATS ARE STRIKING
BACK -- RAMPING UP THEIR CRITICISM OF THE SENATE GOP.
THE DEMOCRATS' PLANS INCLUDE SCALING BACK THE IMPORTATION OF
CANADIAN TRASH, MAKING IT EASIER TO SUE DRUG COMPANIES AND BANNING
WORKPLACE SMOKING.
REPUBLICANS HAVE BEEN ON BOARD WITH BIPARTISAN ECONOMIC
PROPOSALS AIMED AT BOOSTING THE FILM INDUSTRY IN MICHIGAN AND
HELPING HOMEOWNERS DURING THE ONGOING FORECLOSURE CRISIS.
