Representative Ed Rynders told us the version of the consolidation charter bill that passed the Senate won't come up for a vote in the House because language in that bill that violates House rules was never changed.
"We received the Senate bill in the House and it does meet the House requirements for local legislation. Therefore, it must treated as a general bill. And since it did not pass out of the Senate before cross-over day, which is day 30, it cannot be enacted on this legislative session," said Re. Ed Rynders, (R) Leesburg.
Senator Freddie Powell Sims told us Monday she thinks the bill can pass even though there are just two days remaining in the General Assembly session.
