The act McMillin says is disruptive to our economy? Picketing.
House Bill 4643, sponsored by McMillin, would increase fines for protesters violating current picketing laws to $1,000 a day for individuals, and $10,000 a day for organizations sponsoring pickets, such as unions.
That’s right. McMillin’s solution to our fickle economy is to impose tougher penalties on a law already on the books.He first introduced the bill in 2011, but it was shot down by the House. Tommy doesn’t like to give up on his anti-union aspirations, though. After reintroducing the bill last April, the House, ever so bent to the right, seems to have taken a liking to McMillin’s idea. Last month, the bill was given a final reading and will now be taken up by the full House for a vote.
Can’t imagine what could have prompted this.
