Lame Duck wrap up, plus how your legislators voted

This legislative season was one of the most destructive in MCO’s history.

Bills allowing prison privatization, Right to Work and retiree double-dipping all passed the Republican-controlled House of Representatives and Senate. MCO was successful in prolonging the passage of some of these bills, but ultimately, they were all approved during the Lame Duck Session.

Remember, elections have consequences, and we should all be aware of them. We’ve posted information on how your state Representatives and Senators voted on certain legislation, but here is a complete guide to their votes on the most anti-MCO and anti-worker legislation approved in 2012. How did yours vote?
