THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL THE SENATE CONCUR WITH THE RECORD THEIR VOTES AYE, THOSE OPPOSED NO. ARE THE SENATORS READY TO VOTE? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED? DO ANY SENATORS DESIRE TO CHANGE THEIR VOTE? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL. AYES 39, NOS 0. AYES 39, NOS 0. THE SENATE CONCURS WITH THE HOUSE SUBSTITUTE. SENATE BILL 392 PASSED THE HOUSE WITH AMENDMENT. SENATOR FROM EASTERN FAIRFAX COUNTY, SENATOR SUROVELL. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. I MOVE THAT WE AGREE TO THE HOUSE AMENDMENTS AND SPEAKING TO THAT MOTION. THE SENATOR HAS THE FLOOR. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT. LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE SENATE, THIS BILL SIMPLY ALLOWS SOMEBODY TO PARTIALLY RELEASE A JUDGMENT. THE CLERKS LOOKED AT IT, WANTED TO MAKE SURE THEY GOT THEIR MONEY AND PUT AN AMENDMENT ON IT THAT SAID YOU CAN RELEASE IT PARTIALLY IF YOU PAY THE CLERK THEIR MONEY.
