Time To Pull And Re-Do SB 51


Do you remember SB51?  That Sokola Bill that no one read, and all were told that it was a no brainer because everyone was behind it, and it passes the Senate Unanimously and the Amendment was not even read; just passed anyway?  And in the House, four people tried to slow it down, but it just raced through?
