House voting boards now divided by party

Holland stood and inquired of Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, about the two boards displaying the votes.

Gunn explained the names on the boards where the votes are displayed for the public and members to see now are divided by party.

As long as anyone can remember, the names of representatives on the voting boards were in alphabetical order. Now the minority Democratic Party members are listed first on the boards, in alphabetical order, and then the Republicans are listed.
