ST. LOUIS (Feb. 24) — This afternoon, delegates prioritized legislation. “Expect to see votes designed to judge the priority which should be given to differing pieces of legislation,” explains the Rev. Wil Cantrell in his blog. “This will provide a bellwether for which plans and petitions have the most chance of eventual passage.”
