Politics is all about posturing and deal making. To get X to sign Y bill, you'll allow Z. I'm not sure it's how this happened, but an example would be, "If we can get a vote on my bill banning the income tax, I'll sign on to vote for your bill to..." do whatever. Or "I'll lift a block I had on your legislation."
The old saying goes, "Laws are like sausages. It's better not to see them being made."
