The bill passed the House 41-24 with partisan defections on both sides — Republican members Cheri Gerou, Don Marostica, Tom Massey, Kevin Priola, and Ellen Roberts voting for the measure and Democrats Wes McKinley and John Soper voting against it.
HB 1260 moves to the Senate Judiciary Committee which will hear the measure on March 16.
