The House Committee on Law Enforcement

80th Legislature

March 20, 2007

during reading and referral of bills



Pursuant to an announcement from the house floor on March 20, 2007 for a formal meeting and pursuant to the permission granted for the committee to meet while the house is in session during bill referral, the House Committee on Law Enforcement met in a formal meeting and was called to order by the chair, Representative Driver, at 11:59 a.m.


The roll was answered as follows:


Present:              Representatives Driver; Latham; Ortiz, Jr.; Vo; West, George "Buddy" (5).


Absent:              Representatives Allen, Alma; Frost (2).


A quorum was present.


Due to the inadvertent statement in which Representative Allen moved to report HB 320 as substituted from committee and the measure was subsequently reported as substituted, when there was no substitute laid out or adopted on the measure, Representative Latham moved to reconsider the vote by which the measure was reported from committee. The motion to reconsider prevailed without objection.


Representative Vo moved that HB 320, without amendments, be reported favorably to the full house with the recommendation that it do pass and be printed. The motion prevailed by the following record vote:


Ayes:                             Representatives Driver; Latham; Ortiz, Jr.; Vo; West, George "Buddy" (5).


Nays:                             None (0).


Present, Not Voting:     None  (0).


Absent:                          Representatives Allen, Alma; Frost  (2).


At 12:00 p.m., on the motion of the chair and without objection, the meeting was adjourned subject to the call of the chair.
