HB 2 gets passed out of the House
By a vote of 76-71, Republicans passed HB 2 out of the House last night. I was under the impression that there would be at least a handful of rural Republicans would leave for the vote, but I was proven wrong. But I was right that Grusendorf had the votes - apparently, Democrats like Edwards and Dutton were asked to vote for the bill if need be (if everyone who agreed to vote for HB 2 would have, then the measure would have passed by 79 or 80 votes), but their votes weren't needed. Edwards was one of two representatives who were present but not voting.
