The N&R’s Doug Clark reports that Dingy Harry might give collective bargaining for public safety employees a lame duck shot:

This bill has put Sen. Kay Hagan in a vice. She’s actually taken positions on both sides of the issue. Her most recent, as I understand it, is that she opposes the bill. Yet, some skeptics say she could both support and oppose it by voting for cloture — cutting off debate — which in effect would allow it to pass by majority vote, even if she votes against it.

Hagan has already voted for cloture on an appropriations bill contained language allowing allowing collective bargaining for public safety employees.
