‘Give our bills an opportunity,’ House Democrats plead

Multiple Democratic legislators have filed bills that would increase the state minimum wage and put laws in place for equal pay for women.

On the House floor Monday, Clark tried to signal that he wanted to pull a double-referred equal pay bill out of committee and put it in the calendar for a floor vote. Speaker Philip Gunn, R- Clinton, denied the motion because Gunn did not see or hear Clark attempt to make his motion at the appropriate time.

Clark tried again to pull out the bill when the House convened on Tuesday, but the motion was voted down.
