OutCue: SOC

On Monday, Senator Harlod Caskey filibustered for five hours to stall passage of a bill that would keep speed limits lower than 70 miles per hour on certain highways. On Tuesday, the House of Representatives voted to send the bill back to the senate without changes. Representative Yates.

Actuality: Yates
RunTime:
OutCue: ...day to do it.

This means Caskey might have to talk until April to prevent the Senate from voting on the bill.

From Jefferson City, I'm Jack Dolan.
