With no objections DeadPrez is recognized as co-sponsor.

For reference this is the bill being considered for modification/repeal.

A BILL

Be it enacted in both houses of Congress Assembled,

Quote
The Walter Reuther & Cesar Chavez Solidarity Act

Section 2: Recognition

24 hours to object. Senator, do you wish for all these amendments to be added? It seems like by introducing them separately you want just one, not all 3 at once.

I still fail to see what the supposed “controversy” is…Senators are allowed to offer multiple amendments. Is it that our PPT doesn’t want to do his job?
Having 3 separate amendments is pretty clearly a delaying tactic. Same with objecting to cosponsorship on that other bill.

Pseudo-filibustering aside, I can not support this bill. I'm not even sure what Reactionary's point is considering the elections as stipulated in section 2B are secret ballot. The signed affirmation isn't, sure, but there's measures in 2C to make that anonymous.

All this does, in it's current form, is cut back the protections we gave workers by making it legal again to aggressively retaliate against workers trying to unionize.

btw, I just noticed there's two SB 110-15s and two SB 110-14s. Makes things slightly confusing.
