No he just did a "gut and ammend". He took an existing bill and Senate Rules let him cut and paste the language to SB 1160 into AB 2895 (Nunez).
It passed because they have the votes in the Senate, period. The bill must now be heard in the Assembly by the end of business tonight. Stay tuned to KFI. A little bird told me they will get the live feed as soon as it comes up.
The bill will pass the Assembly, but Arnold has said that he has not changed his position on this. It can't hurt to keep the heat on though. If you have a Democrat Assemblyman in California, they are in their offices until late tonight. Call them and give them a piece of your mind. Don't bother your GOP reps though. No one on our side is going to vote for this and they have a thousand other things on their plates right now.
AB 2895 was a domestic violence bill stuck in the Senate Appropriations committee. Did they spring it out of committee today prior to doing the gut and amend? If so, there were two votes.
How can you be so sure, they just voted for that anti-First Ammendment, anti-Christian monstrosity.
