What was going on behind closed doors in the lieutenant governor’s office that day?
Did Reeves put pressure on Tindell to take up the legislation?
Or did Tindell receive pressure from other sources?
When asked after the session did he apply pressure on Tindell to take up the bill, Reeves simply said he supported the legislation.
It is of interest that the legislation that has received so much attention — both in the state and out of state — came within a few hours of dying during the 2016 session before the Senate leadership had a change of heart.
What happened behind closed doors to keep it alive probably would be a story worth hearing.
