Legislators Not Playing Nice

Tennessee state representative Stacey Campfield comments on the rough tactics being employed at the General Assembly:

Any one who sat through the committees on Tuesday and Wednesday will be hard pressed to say thing are done in a fair and reasoned manner or for the betterment of the state. Republican bills were killed wholesale....One legislator was told if they presented a bill ,not only would they kill it, but that they would not be allowed to pass any Bill's for two years! How much more blatant can they be?.

While it is not unusual -- either in Tennessee or in other states -- for bills sponsored by members of the minority party never to be allowed to see the light of day, I have heard both from government officials and from lobbyists at the capitol that this has been the most vitriolic legislative session in memory.
