Measure to punish legislators who fall behind on taxes fails after speech from Brown

An effort to give the state Senate more power to punish members who get behind on their taxes failed this afternoon after a personal speech from Macon state Sen. Robert Brown. Brown, also the Senate's Democratic Minority Leader, discussed recent health problems, which led to problems with his business, which he said kept him from filing for his taxes.
