By a 33-16 vote in the Senate and a 57-46 vote in the House, N&R reports.
N&O has the inside story on securing of House votes after the initial vote failed by a 50-53 vote. N&O says Rep. Jon Hardister as one of two House Republicans –the other being Rep. Donny Lambeth, R-Forsyth—who supported the bill then opposed it. Hardister of course opposed the bill before he supported it after which he ultimately voted no.
Hardister must have read Doug Clark’s post.
