Passed Unanimously!

August 04, 2021

The amendment described earlier this afternoon passed the Senate this evening unanimously following the clear presentation by Senator Emmett Hanger (R), the support of Senator Jeremy McPike (D) and a strong comment of support from Senator Janet Howell (D), Chair of Senate Finance and Appropriations Committee.

The next step is the House – if not passed there (and I think it’s in pretty good shape to pass), then it will go to the Conference Committee.  As I said earlier today, “while we do not know the outcome, the possibility is certainly higher at this moment than it was early this morning!”
