4-cent amendment fails, too

“It reminds me of going duck hunting, when there’s a flock of ducks going over and if you don’t take aim at one of them, you wind up not getting any,” said Rep. Richard Jarvis, R-Meridian. “Words to live by, good gentleman,” responded House Assistant Majority Leader Scott Bedke, who’s presiding. Jarvis said, “This is a long-term funding problem. We need to start now.” But when the vote was taken by ayes and nays, the nays sounded very loud, and Bedke said he was in doubt. After each side was asked to stand and Bedke counted, he announced that the 4-cent amendment had failed, too.
