Senate in recess until 8:30 tomorrow; Wilder fails in bid to revive TN Plan

See previous post here.

One of the most poignant or treacherous moves,depending on your point of view, on the floor during the discussion of the tabling motion that defeated Sen. Wilder's bill was Sen. McNally's comment that a gentleman from Fayette County once told him not to bypass the committee system when he had a bill of interest. Sen. McNally used Sen. Wilder's own logic that worked so well to build consensus in the Senate in less partisan days against him.
