Senate Public Health
Sep 29, 2021
Bledsoe [00:00:00] The chair sees a quorum. We’re going to start our meeting. And as you know, this, this is where we used to meet quite a while ago before Covid, so we’re glad to be back in this, in this room. All right. We have some bills that I’m going to call out that have been sent here, and then I believe we’re going to have a motion. Senate Bill 719, Senate Bill 730, Senate Bill 731, Senate Bill 732, Senate Bill 733, Senate Bill 734, Senate Bill 735, Senate Bill 736, Senate Bill 737, Senate Bill 738, Senate Bill 739, Senate Bill 740. All right, do I have a motion?
Davis [00:00:59] Madam Chair, with the exception of Senate Bill 730, Senate Bill 733, Senate Bill 734, Senate Bill 735, I move that we batch the rest of the bills.
Bledsoe [00:01:14] All right, ladies and gentlemen, do I have a second? Do I have a second? All right, we have a second. All right. All those in favor say aye. Yes.
Hammer [00:01:26] Just for the record, we’re batching them out of here, which is going to send them directly to the floor to be debated on the floor, and there is no way in which between here and the floor that they could not be heard for consideration. I’d just like clarification on that.
Bledsoe [00:01:42] Yes, you are exactly right. And we’re doing this because we’re on an expedited schedule. None of us were prepared to hear 12 bills. And so we felt like this would be the best thing, and ultimately they had to be on the floor anyway and again. All right. Give me the ones that are not in there.
Davis [00:02:04] The ones not included in the batch are Senate Bill 730, Senate Bill 733, Senate Bill 734, and Senate Bill 735.
Bledsoe [00:02:16] All right.
Davis [00:02:17] The rest of the bills I’d like to–
Bledsoe [00:02:18] And here are the numbers for those bills that we will be batching today: Senate Bill 719, Senate Bill 731, Senate Bill 732, Senate Bill 736, Senate Bill 737, Senate Bill 738, Senate Bill 739, and Senate Bill 740. And we have a motion. We have a second. We’ve had questions. All in favor say aye. All opposed. Motion carries. And we are dismissed.
