Knox County Republican Lincoln Day Dinner Speaker May NOT Make It to Knoxville

Information from Republican leadership in Washington to members of the U.S. House today is: Good morning. The House will meet at 10:00 a.m. for morning hour and noon for legislative business. Following One Minutes we will begin general debate on H.J.Res. 37 – Net Neutrality. At approximately 1:30-1:45 p.m. we will have our first and only expected series of votes for the day. Members are advised that additional votes are possible after this series. As I am sure you all are well aware, the current CR expires tonight at midnight. As negotiations continue throughout the day I will do my best to relay any and all information to you in a timely manner. SCHEDULER NOTE: There is a chance that we are here and voting tomorrow. Members are advised to keep their schedules flexible today, tomorrow and throughout the weekend. Thank you for bearing with us as we go forward. As always, don’t hesitate to contact our office with any questions.

So, Senator Coburn, Senator Alexander, Corker and Congressman Duncan may not make it to k-town tonight. So, maybe Mayor Burchett and Trustee Duncan can entertain the dinner attendees with a review of open and transparency -vs- smoke filled backroom shenanigans.
