Debate started 3:45pm approx.
Rep. Glazier, Primary Sponsor: “It seems to me it is the quintessential job of a legislator to make gentler the flow of daily life for our most vulnerable children and protect them from violence and hatred and harassment. There is a saying: ‘If I am not for me, who will be, but if I am only for me who am I?’ and ‘If not now when?’ Today is the day when we speak as a voice and protect children.”
Representative Glazier immediately Called the Previous Question (ends debate).
Representative Stam offered a motion of higher precedence and moved to recess the House for 5 minutes.
