Harvey caught Senate Dems off guard with his amendment to Senator Ron Tupa's SB07-83. Senate Dem leadership was so befuddled when the amendment was accepted by the chair that they laid it over without a vote, effectively taking a procedural 'time-out'.
Harvey's amendment will be up for a vote later this week on the senate floor.
“With the illegal aliens coming here in droves, one would hope we could take some responsible steps toward protecting the integrity of our voting system,” said Harvey.
Democrats appeared to have been caught off guard by Harvey’s proposal and moved to postpone debate until later in the week.
“The Dems couldn’t believe their own chairman ruled that it fit under the title, so they laid it over,” explained Harvey.
