Pelosi Squashes MiJac Congressional Resolution By Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee

There are 23 comments on the story from Jul 10, 2009, titled Pelosi Squashes MiJac Congressional Resolution By Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee. In it, reports that:

*It's over for House Resolution 600 – the legislation introduced by Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee, D-Texas that would have proclaimed Michael Jackson as an American legend, musical icon and world humanitarian.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Thursday denied the resolution because debate on the symbolic measure could raise "contrary views" about the pop star's life, she explained.

Lawmakers are free to use House speeches "to express their sympathy or their praise any time that they wish," said Pelosi, D-Calif. "I don't think it's necessary for us to have a resolution."

Even before Pelosi's comments, some Democrats said privately they did not support the resolution and a divisive debate would hurt House efforts to muster the votes for priorities such as health care and climate change.
