Transcript

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

RELATING TO THE INDIVIDUALS IN K-3. THE CHANGES FROM THE SUBSTITUTE WAS TO INCREASE THE NUMBERS PER DAY FROM FIVE TO 10 AND REDUCE THE NUMBER OF YEARS INVOLVED FROM FIVE TO THREE. I WOULD HOPE WE WOULD PASS THE BILL.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THE QUESTION IS SHALL HOUSE BILL 1536 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILLS AYE, THOSE OPPOSED NO. ARE ALL THE SENATORS READY TO V? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED? HANGE DO ANY SENATORS DESIRE TO C THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL. THEIR VOTE?

[Unknown]: AYES 33, NOS 7. AYES 33, NOS 7. THE BILL PASSES. HOUSE BILL 1578. A BILL RELATING TO PARTICIPATION IN PUBLIC SCHOOL INTERSCHOOLAFTERRIC PROGRAMS BY STUDENTS WHO RECEIVE HOME INSTRUCTION. REPORTED FROM THE COMMITTEE ON EDUCATION AND HEALTH. THE SENATOR FROM BEDFORD, SENATOR MENUMAN. WE HAVE SEEN THIS BILL A NUMBER OF TIMES BEFORE IT HAS PASSED OUT OF THIS BODY IN THE PAST AND HAS BEEN SENT TO THE THIRD FLOOR WHERE THERE WAS SOME CONCERN ABOUT THE BILL. THIS BILL IS A BILL THAT ALLOWS HOME SCHOOLED STUDENTS THE OPPORTUNITY TO BE INVOLVED IN INTERSCHOLASTIC PROGRAMS. AS YOU NOTICE FROM THE BILL LAST YEAR, IT DOES INCORPORATE RELATED TO DISCIPLINE RULES WHICH WAS ADDED TO THE BILL AND ALSO COMPLYING WITH OTHER PUBLIC SCHOOL ATHLETIC RULES AND ALSO


Sen. Adam Ebbin (D-Alexandria): JURORS FOR SERVING THEIR CIVIC DUTY, NOT FOR ANY OTHER I'M OPEN TO ALLOWING FOR PURPOSE. COMPENSATION TO -- WITH DBITY CARDS TO THOSE WHO WANT THEM -- DEBIT CARDS TO THOSE WHO WANT THEM. I CALLED THE SPONSOR TO SEE IF HE WAS OPEN TO AMENDMENT. HE PREFERRED THAT WE HAVE AN UP OR DOWN VOTE. I WOULD SUGGEST WE VOTE DOWN AND RED TO DEFEAT THE BILL.

[Unknown]: THE SENATOR FROM ROCKINGHAM, SENATOR OBENSHAIN.

Sen. Mark Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg): MR. PRESIDENT, JUST SPEAKING BRIEFLY. THIS IS FAR DIFFERENT FROM TAX REFUNDS ISSUED ON DEBIT CARDS, INSTEAD OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, THESE ARE TECHES OF DOLLARS -- TENS OF DOLLARS, AND THE PAYMENTS ARE MADE TO THE JURORS, AND THEY CAN CASH IT, AND THEY CAN DEPOSIT IT WITHOUT CHARGE, SO WITH THAT, MR. PRESIDENT, I WOULD RENEW MY MOTION TO PASS THE BILL.

[Unknown]: THANK YOU, SENATOR.

Sen. Mark Obenshain (R-Harrisonburg): WOULD THE GENTLEMAN FROM ROCKINGHAM YIELD FOR A QUESTION?

[Unknown]: WOULD THE SENATOR FROM ROCKINGHAM YIELD FOR A QUESTION? I'LL YIELD. WHETHER I CAN ANSWER IT OR NOT IS ANOTHER QUESTION. HE YIELDS, SENATOR. THE SENATOR MADE REFERENCE TO CASHING THE CARD. HOW DO YOU CASH A CARD IF YOU WANT TO NOT SPEND IT. WHERE DO YOU GO TO CASH A THE SENATOR FROM DEBIT CARD? ROCKINGHAM. TO A BANK. THE SENATOR FROM SPEAKING, JUST FOR A SECOND ALEXANDRIA. AGAINST THE BILL. THE -- ACTUALLY, I DON'T KNOW A BANK THAT CASHES DEBIT CARDS. I KNOW A BANK THAT WILL HEALTH ARE LET -- LET YOU DEPOSIT NEM IN THE ACCOUNT THEM IN AN ACCOUNT, IF YOU HAVE AN ACCOUNT THERE. HE MADE REFERENCE TO WHETHER IT WAS TENS OR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS. WOULD I SAY REGARDLESS WHETHER IT'S TENS OR THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS, IF YOU WANT A CHECK, YOU SHOULD GET A CHECK. PARTICULARLY WHEN THESE CARDS HAVE NOT YET BEEN PERFECTED. WE'VE HEARD PROBLEMS WHEN WE DID HAVE THE TAX REFUNDS, AND WE HEARD PROBLEMS ABOUT THIS FEDERAL CLASS-ACTION LAWSUIT. I WOULD BE OPEN IF IT WAS A CHOICE, BUT IT IS NOT A CHOICE. LET'S MAKE IT EASIER FOR THE JURORS, AND IF THEY DON'T GET A CHOICE, LET'S OFFER THEM A CHECK. THANK YOU. THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL HOUSE BILL

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION RECORD THEIR VOTES AYE, OPPOSED NO. VOTE? HAVE ALL THE SENATORS VOTED? DO ANY OF THE SENATORS DESIRE TO CHANGE THEIR VOTE? THE CLERK WILL CLOSE THE ROLL.

[Unknown]: AYES 25, NO'S 15.
