Now that’s non-controversial

The Senate is “rolling votes” – using the same unanimous roll call repeatedly, in order to save time while passing non-controversial bills. But on the last one, Senate President Pro-tem Bob Geddes may have gotten a little overenthusiastic. He initially reported that without objection, SB 1006, a measure dealing with audits at the state retirement fund, had passed by a vote of 36-0. But there are only 35 senators.

Geddes quickly corrected himself – it was 35-0.
