Gingham Bill Advances to Third Reading at Mass. State House
A bill, H.2862, introduced in the Massachusetts House of Representatives by Harold P. Nauhton (Dem., Clinton), to designate gingham as the official textile of Massachusetts, has advanced to the House Committee on Bills in the Third Reading. The Committee considers all bills prior to their final reading, and examine, correct and recommend such amendments as may be necessary concerning duplication, grammatical errors, constitutionality, etc. Advancing to the Committee on Third Reading is general an indication that the bill has a good likelihood of being considered by the full house.
