Bill Purposely Failed

The UNF Organic Project was scheduled to present, but was absent from the Committee meeting.  No motion was made and the bill died.  Fransua Estrada, Budget and Allocations Committee Chairman,  said there will need to be eight Senator’s signatures for the group to present at the Senate meeting next week.

More information was required from the group, Estrada didn’t receive that information until Thursday.  The Committee Meeting Agenda was due on Wednesday.

“The bill was purposefully failed so that they could get a fair and just chance to present in the Senate next week,” said Estrada.
