House Bill 1248, which was to require every facility that handles embryos to report each year the number of embryos it disposes of or destroys, the number of embryos it ships out of state for disposal, and the total number of embryos shipped out of state for any reason, was deferred to the 41st Legislative Day on 5-1 by the Senate Health and Human Services committee.
Sent to the 41st Legislative Day:
An act to send a bill to the day after the last day of the Legislative Session for discussion, ultimately defeating the bill.
Legislative Research Council’s (LRC) full definition: Each house may by motion order its committee to deliver a bill or resolution under its consideration to that house if no more than three legislative days have passed since the committee reported that the bill or resolution was tabled or deferred to the 41st legislative day. If the motion is supported by the vote of one-third or more of the members-elect, the chair of the committee shall, not later than the next legislative day, deliver the bill or resolution to the house without recommendation in the same form the bill or resolution was in when it was tabled or deferred to the 41st legislative day.
