Scoring change

Posted at 8:50 AM on May 11, 2007 by Bob Collins

There's been a scoring change on yesterday's passage in the Senate of HF2294. Originally, since it basically became a new law when the Senate hijacked it to add tax language (I wrote about this yesterday), I awarded it TF (to floor) and F (floor passage) points (total of 35) to Rep. Dill, the sole sponsor of a bill he didn't write, the first time a House bill got TF/FP points in th other chamber. But upon consideration, technically, this bill already got TF/FP points in the House and a bill shouldn't get more than 1 round of TF/FP points. So the scoring here has been changed to reflect that HF2294 has been passed by the other chamber (OC) and OC points (total 25).

Even though the House will get a look at the bill for the first time (with the current language in it) when it arrives there today, I think, it cannot accumulate any more points.

This would all be a lot easier if the Senate had just passed a clean bill but this is the "Tina Turner" time of the year at the Capitol. They don't do anything nice...... and easy.

You know what I mean?
