Superintendent powers, raw milk on Thursday Senate calendar; Decker quotes Jagger

Senate Org today approved a lengthy calendar for Thursday that includes a bill to give the state schools superintendent the power to intervene in failing districts and a bill to allow the sale of raw milk.

Also on Thursday's Senate calendar is legislation to offer $10 million in bonding for a new dental school in Marshfield. The funding would be contingent on Marshfield Clinic providing non-state matching funds.

Senate Majority Leader Russ Decker said he hasn't had a chance to look through the language of the substitute amendment to the "Clean Energy Jobs Act."

"I understand there's a substitute amendment out but I haven't seen it yet," Decker, D-Weston, said.

Decker has said he has concerns about the bill raising consumer costs for electricity.

Decker also said a telecomm deregulation bill may have to go through the Joint Finance Committee before it could come to a floor vote in the Legislature.

On the payday lending bill that passed the Senate yesterday, Decker said he hopes the Assembly will take up the Senate version. The Assembly passed a bill earlier that includes regulations on auto title loans, an area the Senate bill doesn't address.

"I think what we put together is a good package and the Assembly, I would hope, would just concur and send it on to the governor," Decker said.

Asked about Assembly reservations about passing the Senate bill, Decker said, "In situations like this I always think of that great English philosopher/songwriter Mick Jagger, 'You can't always get what you want.'"
