This is a transcript of the video clips in which this bill is discussed.

LADIES AND GENTLEMEN THIS BILL JUST CHANGES THE ORDER IN WHICH KEPTS ARE PLACED ON THE BALLOT. THE REGISTRARS SAID BECAUSE ONE FILED BEFORE JULY 1 THEY WANT THE A FLOOR AMENDMENT THAT MADE CLEAR THE BILL APPLIED TO ALL ELECTIONS AFTER JULY 1. I WOULD ASK THE BODY TO ADOPT THE AMENDMENT THE REQUEST HE IS SHALL THE FLOOR AMENDMENT BE AGREED TO. ALL IN FAVOR SAY AYE. THOSE OPPOSED, NO. THE AYES HAVE IT.
NUTRIENT CREDITING PROGRAM IN THE CHESAPEAKE BAY WATERSHED AREA. THIS BILL, SENATE BILL 443, SETS UP A NUTRIENT CREDIT EXCHANGE PROGRAM IN THE SOUTHERN RIVERS BY ESTABLISHING AN EXPEDITED PROCESS FOR CERTIFYING NUTRIENT. THE BILL HAS IT LEFT THE SENATE ENVISIONED A FEE THAT WOULD SET UP A STED DIETED PROCESS -- EXPEDITED PROCESS. THE HOUSE AMENDMENTS REMOVED THAT FEE AND INSTEAD SET UP A TIME-SPECIFIC TABLE FOR THESE CREDITS TO BE CERTIFIED, SO I AGREE WITH THAT PARTICULAR EXCHANGE AND MOVE WE CONCUR WITH THE HOUSE AMENDMENT.
