As reported yesterday, after lengthy testimony from both sides of the issues, Senate Bill 737 passed the House Executive Committee on a vote of 8 to 3.The next stage for this bill is the passage stage by the entire House. In order to pass, the bill needs at least 60 Representatives to vote for this bill.
