I first met Assemblyman Mark Schroeder in June 2008. He was waiting for a House vote on his bill to study hostile work environments with the goal of stopping abusive bosses. We all kept an eye on the vote board that hangs high above the assembly hall as Schroeder slipped out to talk to our camera. The bill had already made it’s way through all of the committees with strong suport. When would it come up for vote? The clock kept ticking. Pat, my videographer, and I held out as long as we could but finally had to leave in order to get home in time for our daily work-a-days. Just as well since the bill never came up for a vote. Schroeder reintroduced the study bill again this year and it passed the House and moved on to the Senate.
