Senate in full horse-trading mode on immigration bill

Special to SEGAZINE

Senators engaged in last-minute jockeying and horse trading Tuesday as they barreled toward the finish line for the Gang of Eight bill — an effort that could secure a handful of additional Republican votes for immigration reform this week.

Negotiators are zeroing in on Republican Sens. Rob Portman of Ohio and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia as lawmakers who ultimately could support the Gang of Eight bill. Both have amendments they want voted on — Chambliss is calling for changes involving agricultural workers, and Portman is demanding tougher E-Verify requirements.
