FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
July 30, 2013
"I am pleased with the Senate's overwhelming passage of SJR 1 and SB1 within the first few hours of the third special session. As author of the measures and a member of the Senate work group on the topic, I look forward to working with our House counterparts toward a consensus. This resolution and bill are identical to the conference committee report agreed to by many members of both chambers during the second special session, and I am hopeful that by working together we will be able to move the improved versions to final passage."
