Trying to avoid a railroad strike: The House has passed a bill that would bind companies and workers to a proposed settlement reached in September. Fifth District Republican Bob Good told the Morningline one reason why he voted against the measure:
Good_congress rail strike :11
He’s also against the measure that provides rail workers with seven days paid sick leave.
Good_rail strike vote :21
The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration. The unions have threatened to strike if an agreement can’t be reached before a Dec. 9 deadline.
