Transcript

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

TO BE FISCALLY CONSERVATIVE. I JUST THINK SPENDING A HALF MILLION DOLLARS A YEAR ON YET ANOTHER SECRETARIAT JUST DOESN'T MAKE A LOT OF SENSE UNLESS WE REALLY WANT TO SEE ANOTHER SET OF ADORING EYES AT THE STATE OF THE COMMONWEALTH THAT WILL RISE EVERY TIMET GOVERNOR TAKES A BREATH. WE'RE RUNNING OUT OF ROOM IN THE HOUSE ANYWAY, SO -- MR. PRESIDENT, LADIES AND GENTLEMEN OF THE SENATE, I THINK THIS IS A BILL THAT'S WELL INTENTIONED, AND LOOK, I COME FROM HAMPTON ROADS, BUT I WILL TELL YOU THAT I REALLY THINK THAT THIS BILL IS NOT IN THE BEST INTERESTS OF THE COMMONWEALTH AND CAN BE DONE MUCH LESS EXPENSIVELY IN AN EXISTING DEPARTMENT. THANK YOU, MR. PRESIDENT.

Del. Bill Howell (R-Fredericksburg): THANK YOU, SENATOR. THE QUESTION IS SHALL SENATE BILL 1349 PASS. ALL IN FAVOR OF THE MOTION WILL 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.

[Unknown]: AYES 19, NOS 21. AYES 19, NOS 21. THE BILL DOES NOT PASS. SENATE BILL 1441, RELATING TO ABSENTEE VOTING, ELIGIBILITY OF PERSONS WHOSE POLLING PLACE PROHIBITS FIREARMS. THE SENIOR SENATOR FROM RICHMOND CITY, SENATOR STURTEVANT.
