The State House Is Now Working Faster For No Reason At All
April 8, 2015 at 1:53PM
Earlier today, the state House voted 97-0 in favor of the flow motion, a move they make every year toward the end of the session in the hopes of closing up shop before an arbitrary, self-set, meaningless deadline. Andrea Zelinski explained the #FloMo yesterday at the Post:
The flow motion suspends 12 aspects of the House rules, like allowing a floor calendar to exceed 25 bills, adding flexibility on when committees and the full house can meet, and sidestepping waiting periods for bills or amendments to be heard.
