Second procedural challenge also fails

Now, House Democrats have moved, unsuccessfully, to send HB 262 to the House's amending order. Rep. John Rusche, D-Lewiston, said he wanted the "objectionable" parts removed. Several Democratic representatives spoke in favor of the motion; some said the bill's fiscal note was incorrect. Rep. Bob Nonini, R-Coeur d'Alene, said, "I don't think this fiscal note could be any more accurate. If this legislation were to pass, I think it will save the state $8.1 million a year." The motion failed on an 18-51, party-line vote.
