California Lawmakers Kill Fee Bill by Not Voting

Freitag 15. Januar 2010 von htm

AB 1019 died the first week of 2010 without making it out of its first committee. The bill needed 10 yes votes from the 19 members of the Assembly Health Committee to keep it alive. It only received 5. (You can view a complete list of the certified vote at the end of this article.) (Source: Marin Institute, 1/11/10)
