Senate Bill 188 vote correction and movement update

Last week we let you know that the committee substitute for Senate Bill 188 was voted out of the Health and Human Services Committee on a vote of 5 to 1 with three senators absent. Now that the committee report is available we have learned that the three senators we listed as being absent actually submitted their votes by proxy, updating the final vote count to 7 to 2. Senators West and Zaffirini voted aye, and Senator Patrick voted nay.

Senate Bill 188 has been placed on the Senate Intent Calendar and could be voted on by the full Senate as early as next week.
