And it's a "new" version, whatever the hell that means:
House Speaker Tim Moore announced that a new version of House Bill 562 will available to the public online by 9 p.m.
It's scheduled to "pass through" – that is, to be approved by – the House Rules Committee at a 9 a.m. meeting Wednesday and will then be added to the House's floor calendar for debate during Wednesday's 2 p.m. session.
Among other things, making the "Crossover Deadline" nothing more than a bad joke. I'm sure Republicans will trot out their usual, "Democrats did it first!" excuse for twisting the rules and ramming through legislation lawmakers (and everybody else) haven't had the time to study. But they never did that with bills that could have such a profound impact on the safety of citizens. There's a huge difference, but the GOP just can't grasp it.
