During lame duck sessions of government there often are times when legislation that otherwise wouldn’t get passed winds up finding enough votes. 
But now a few lawmakers want to pass a law to stop that from happening when it comes to tax increases. Democrat Rep. Jack Franks says that passing important tax increases shouldn’t be done at the end of someone’s time in office.
Franks is a lame duck lawmaker and his bill is filed as a constitutional amendment and would require a three-fifths majority of lawmakers to agree to pass a lame duck tax hike.
