Sen. Russ Fulcher, R-Meridian, moved to send HB 117, the health care nullification bill, to the full Senate with a recommendation that it "do pass." "I do believe that we as the states do have this right," Fulcher said. "I believe that we must act." Sen. Chuck Winder, R-Meridian, seconded the motion, but it failed on a voice vote - only Fulcher and Winder voted in favor. That means the bill dies.
