Meanwhile, H.39 is expected to land in the House chamber next week. Anxious to move the legislation out of committee, where it has lingered for two weeks, Rep. Heidi Scheuermann, R-Stowe, who sponsored the bill, earlier this week negotiated a commitment from House Speaker Mitzi Johnson for a floor debate and vote on Tuesday.

Scheuermann called the proposed amendment “a new and interesting thought,” and said she was fine with postponing the vote a little longer.

“If it’s possible that we can get the support of the committee for a delay, by going in this direction, if I need to give it another day, and our group needs to give it another day, we’re happy to do that,” she said.
