The House has gone into its 3rd reading calendar, which normally precedes the 12th order of business in the House - general orders, where amendments to bills are considered. That was a surprise, as the House was expected to skip over that today to get to its amending order to take up amendments to Rep. Lynn Luker's controversial religious freedom expansion bill, HB 427. However, House Speaker Scott Bedke just indicated that the House will not go into that order today after all.
