The second vote happened. 16 Yes, 15 No. I dont have a breakdown of who voted which way yet. SB 250 is still short of the 20 or 21 Yes votes needed to pass.
Several rules would have to be waived for another vote today. But SB 250 will almost certainly be back tomorrow for yet another re-vote.
Now is a critical time. Sen. Florez will be putting pressure on members of his party who voted No, abstained, or were not present to vote on SB 250. PLEASE keep it up with the calls and faxes.
In his speech, Sen. Florez made the baseless claim that SB 250 would save $250 million a year. Never mind that MSN has never saved any jurisdiction money, and that animal control costs have doubled in Santa Cruz County since they passed MSN.
