Only two motions are motion to Table and motion to reconsider are available. Could potentially vote to kill the bill with this procedure.

Only those opposed to motion were allowed to speak on motion to Table SB3049. Roll call 54-56. Motion fails. Some are claiming votes didn’t show. Results in tie and motion still fails. Motion can be made again. Only chairman can make motions on these bills

Motion made to Table motion on SB3049 again. Rep Robert Johnson addressing House. Says outcome is a statement on the Processes. Calls out the vouchers took money from first responders to give to private schools. Not going to do that for political ambitions down the hall

Rep Straughter reminds everyone that the Speaker was elected unanimously for “all of us.” None of us is above the other. As we continue to work for Mississippi let’s realize that we don’t work just for ourselves. We work for all of us in Mississippi.
