Four more members of the House – the key component of co-sponsors – have signed on to the measure.
There are 16 senators with a signature attached to the bill – to practice of co-sponsoring legislation is not woven into the body’s DNA the same way that it is in the House.
And in the House, there are now 187 co-sponsors.
218 members would represent half of the membership plus one, signifying enough support to beat back either of the two bills being considered in that body – primarily the Fair Play Fair Pay Act.
The latest to sign up are:
John Katko (NY-24)
John Mica (FL-7)
Elise Stefanik (NY-21)
David Young (IA-3).
