URBANA, Ill. — Indiana House Minority Leader B. Patrick Bauer said Tuesday that Democrats have narrowed the scope of their legislative boycott to three bills, but there still is no end in sight for the partisan stalemate that began more than two weeks ago.

House Democrats remained entrenched Tuesday at the Comfort Suites hotel in this Illinois college town. Bauer, D-South Bend, said the caucus doesn't plan to return to the Statehouse today either.

The Democrats are focused on amending or preventing three Republican-sponsored measures, Bauer said, that would create vouchers for private school tuition, restrict prevailing wage rules and labor agreements for public building projects, and affect collective bargaining for teachers and public employees.
