S.88 gets out of House Appropriations Committee by 7-3

A quick report on the House Appropriations Committee. It was not really that dramatic, unlike many of the other committees that we have sat in on. The committee passed S.88 by a vote of 7-3. Reps who voted no were: Helm, Winters, Acinapura. Steve Maier defended the bill, with representative George Till, D-Bolton, there as well and Robin Lunge, legislative council. They did add an amendment, which carried the entire committee, an amendment about funding which I will write more of later. It should be going up to the floor later on this week, perhaps Thursday or Friday. We'll see.
