Planned amendment not added
By Diana Bowley
AUGUSTA - Even though the House on Friday accepted an ought-not-to-pass minority report that killed a bill to allow Atkinson to vote on deorganization, the bill's sponsor said it isn't over yet.Rep. James Annis, R-Dover-Foxcroft, who sponsored the bill, and Sen. Paul Davis, R-Sangerville, co-sponsor, had arranged for Rep. George Bunker, D-Kossuth, to add an amendment to the bill before the hammer hit the block Friday, but the amendment never came. Bunker had been attending another meeting in the State House and had not been informed the matter was to be heard as he had requested, according to Annis.
