SJR3 was stalled in the Judiciary Committee for the rest of the session after the Rules Committee Vote to Pass. It was never brought to a hearing since the committee chair thought it was the same as Civil Rights Amendment. It isn’t.
I was online looking at progress or actions on bills almost every day, listening in on hearings, and watching the webcasts, but I won’t count that time – too much and I didn’t keep track. There’s more coming for the brief part of the March session which fatigued me because nothing was happening wih my main concern, SJR-3.
