S.105 Saving the Automatic Stay (Special Order Vote)
After intense debate in subcommittee and committee in the Senate, the bill made it to the floor of the Senate where it was stalled by an objection from Senator McElveen. The Senate attempted to make this bill priority for consideration (by placing it on “special order”) and overcome Senator McElveen’s objection. The vote on the Senate floor failed to reach the 2/3 majority and failed 25-15 (27 were needed). This failed special order vote is the focus of this scored vote.
- This is a procedural vote on an Anti-Conservation Bill.
- The Pro-Conservation Vote was NO for special order in the Senate.
- An amended bill passed the Senate in 2017, the House in 2018, and was signed into law by the Governor.
