BOBBY HARRISON: Even with super majority, you don’t always get what you want

Every now and then, there is just enough of an uprising to remind the legislative leadership – namely Speaker Philip Gunn and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves – that a super majority does not give them carte blanche to pass whatever they want.

That was evident on Tuesday’s deadline when a handful of Republicans joined with Democrats to kill legislation that would have removed civil service protection for state employees. Tuesday was the deadline for that bill and dozens of others to be passed out of committee in the chamber where the proposal did not originate.
