[Unknown]: AYES 38, NOS 0. AYES 38, NOS 0. THE MOTION IS AGREED TO. THE SENATOR FROM ROANOKE CITY. MR. PRESIDENT, I MOVE THAT WE WAIVE THE READING OF THE FIVE FLOOR AMENDMENTS. THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS, SHALL THE READING OF THE FLOOR AMENDMENTS BE WAIVED? ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILL SAY AYE. THOSE OPPOSED, NO. THE AYES HAVE IT. THE READING OF THE FLOOR AMENDMENTS IS WAIVED. THE SENATOR FROM ROANOKE CITY. MR. PRESIDENT, THESE FIVE SIMPLE FLOOR AMENDMENTS, THREE OF WHICH JUST A NUMBERING AMENDMENTS, MAKES THIS BILL VERY SIMPLE. IT JUST SIMPLY ALLOWS THE CITY OF ANY LOCALITY, WHEN THEY HAVE TO DEMOLISH OR REPAIR STRUCTURES ON AN EMERGENCY BASIS FOR BLIGHT OR BECAUSE OF FIRE, WHATEVER, TO BE ABLE TO OBTAIN A LIEN ON THE PROPERTY, WHICH NOW IS NOT AUTHORIZED UNDER EXISTING LAW. SO WITH THAT UNDERSTANDING, I MOVE THAT THE FLOOR AMENDMENTS BE APPROVED, AND I BELIEVE WE HAVE AGREEMENT ON THIS, BE APPROVED IN BLOCK. THE SENATOR FROM ROCKINGHAM, THANK YOU, SENATOR. SENATOR OBENSHAIN. WE'VE BEEN TALKING ABOUT THIS
