he explained. The speaker's job
in the past has taken on different
interpretations with the feeling
that a presiding officer should
preside and not take sides most

support of legislation. Davis has
kept the non-partisan tag since
he took office.
The legislation was bottled
up when a UP amendment was
introduced. The amendment
contained several articles one
of which would put Victory
