Substitute motions: Do-pass, and pass without recommendation…

Rep. Melissa Wintrow, D-Boise, offered a substitute motion to send HB 2 to the full House with a recommendation that it pass. “We know that tolerance and inclusion is the way,” she said. “Let it get to the floor for everyone to weigh in. I think our state deserves that.”

Rep. Elaine Smith, D-Pocatello, offered an amended substitute motion, to send the bill to the full House with no recommendation, “to allow all House members to vote on this important issue.”
