IT ENTITLED ANY PERSON WHO MAY OTHERWISE LAWFULLY CARRY A FIREARM TO VOTE ABSENTEE IF THEIR POLLING PLACE IS LOCATED IN WHAT IS ESSENTIALLY A GUN-FREE ZONE OR OTHER PRIVATE PROPERTY THAT DOES NOT ALLOW FIREARMS.

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 25, NOS 14. AYES 25, NOS 14. THE BILL PASSES. SENATE BILL 1077, A BILL RELATING TO ISSUANCE OF DISABLED PARKING PLACARDS. THE SENIOR SENATOR FROM BATH COUNTY, SENATOR DEEDS.

Sen. Creigh Deeds (D-Bath): MR. PRESIDENT, I MOVE THE BILL PASS. YOU WILL RECALL THAT THIS IS A BILL WE HAD SOME DISCUSSION ABOUT YESTERDAY. THIS BILL DOESN'T EXPAND THE TYPES OF CONDITIONS OR DISORDERS FOR WHICH SOMEBODY MAY ALREADY QUALIFY FOR DISABILITY PLACARD. THE LAW ALREADY HAS PROVISIONS FOR MENTAL IMPAIRMENTS. THIS BILL SIMPLY EXPANDS THE LIST OF PROFESSIONALS WHO CAN SIGN AN APPLICATION ON BEHALF OF A PATIENT. UNDER EXISTING LAW, A PATIENT WOULD NEED TO SCHEDULE AN ADDITIONAL APPOINTMENT WITH POSITIONS, USING TIME, MONEY, AND A PHYSICIAN'S VALUABLE TIME, SIMPLY TO COMPLY WITH THE LAW, ALL TO OBTAIN A SIGNATURE FROM
