Moyle: ‘That would be a cruel April Fools Day joke’

Next up on the House calendar was SB 1133a, the twice-amended bill that originally was a Senate bill about school safety, and now has morphed into a combination of two House-passed but Senate-neglected guns rights bills. House Majority Leader Mike Moyle, R-Star, said he thought the House would hear the amended bill today, “but I think that would be a cruel April Fools Day joke.” So instead, he asked that the bill hold its place on the calendar until Thursday.

The bill was “radiator-capped,” removing its entire original content; as such, it stands no chance of passage in the Senate, which saw its bill excised out, leaving only the bill number intact.
