After over seven hours of testimony, the House Judiciary Committee has voted to postpone SB 11-172 indefinitely (kill it).
The vote was along party lines with all Dems voting in favor of the bill and all GOP voting against it.
GOP Reps. DelGrosso and Nikkel each paused for several seconds before casting their vote.
A disappointing end.
If the bill had passed this committee, it would have had to also make its way through both the Appropriations Committee and the Finance Committee. The bill was assured passage in each of the with GOP Reps. Looper and Conti having already publicly supported the bill.
Had it made it through all of that, it would have passed in the full house 35-30.
Remember the names of those who voted no.
