UPDATE: The bill passed back through the Senate but the House narrowly defeated the Recede and Concur motion by 4 votes, 72-76. The bill is dead.

UPDATE: The House debated the bill but supported the Ought Not to Pass motion 71-69. We expect the Senate to insist on the Ought to Pass as Amended motion and we expect another close vote in the House.

UPDATE: The Senate voted in favor of the bill under the hammer. 

UPDATE: Although there was essentially no opposition to the bill and dozens of supporters, the LCRED Committee has a divided report on the bill with Republicans supporting the bill and Democrats opposing the bill.
