Iowa labor and supporters gather to oppose collective bargaining bill

Nearly 1,000 labor union members and their supporters rallied in the state Capitol Monday, voicing their opposition to proposed legislation that would weaken collective bargaining rights for Iowa’s public employees. The group then filled the Iowa House chambers for a public hearing on the bill, with opponents vastly outnumbering the handful of supporters who spoke up for the legislation. “This is about the right for workers to be able to bargain in the workplace,” said Mark Cooper, president of South Central Iowa Federation of Labor.

Florida House rushes through cutting decades of enviro regulations

Florida House rushes through cutting decades of enviro regulations

In less than eight minutes, the Florida House of Representatives cut back decades of environmental regulations. # Friday was the deadline for bills to get heard so they could be available for final votes next week, before the end of the legislative session. As the House sped through dozens of bills, Speaker Dean Cannon repeatedly urged members to keep questions brief, reminding them, as the axiom goes, “Bills are dying.” # The bills only needed to be discussed and amended so they could be debated next week, but House Bill 991, an industry wish-list that streamlines environmental regulations, was immediately rolled over and passed in a 95-16 vote, without questions or debate from members of either party

Backers of Colorado Roadless Rule running out of legal options, enviro attorney says

Backers of Colorado Roadless Rule running out of legal options, enviro attorney says

An environmental attorney who argued in favor of the 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule before a federal appeals court says there are only two legal options left for opponents of the Clinton-era rule and backers of state-specific rules like Colorado’s – and both are long-shots. Earthjustice attorney Jim Angell told the Colorado Independent that last week’s decision by the Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals rejecting a 2008 Wyoming federal court decision and backing the Clinton rule undermines Colorado’s contention that it needs its own rule because of legal uncertainty. “Really, for all intents and purposes this is the certainty we’re going to get in this region, and what’s really going on is the state wants its rule and is using alleged legal uncertainty as an excuse for its continued support for it,” Angell said.
