We have passed the crossover date for this year. So nothing will get passed till next year. Hopefully by then we will have enough members to make the reps listen. I would rather have our bill than this piecemill stuff.
Crossover does not mean a new bill can't be passed. It is beginning to look as if someone is taking our bill and introducing it as several bills. Perhaps they took it and are deviding it up amoung themselves in the hopes to get something to the floor for a vote. This is a sound strategy if you are planing a comprehensive reform. If you have a lot of small related bills it is also not uncommon to combine them on the floor just before a vote. Maybe this is what's going on here. Break it apart only to rejoin it later.
The sponsor, Rep. Bobby Reese, purports to be a friend of pro-gunners and (this through the grapevine) said he would support the type of legislation being discussed here at GeorgiaPacking.org. Again, that is a rumor I have heard. I have not talked with him directly.
