Statement from Senate President Craig Blair regarding Third Extraordinary Session
“I learned this evening via press release of the House’s intention to resume the Third Extraordinary Session on Monday, September 12. To say I was shocked is an understatement. Communication is vital to ensuring government works in an efficient and productive manner. While there has been communication on modifications to House Bill 302 that would be acceptable to both chambers, to date no agreement has been reached.
Make no mistake, I am in complete support of passing legislation to save as many unborn babies as possible. However, I will not cause further chaos and disruption to the process, or burden our taxpayers with unnecessary expenses, by calling Senators back into session without a concrete plan for producing a bill that has the votes to pass both chambers.”
