1. HB 1033  by Rep. Jeremy Hutchinson & Sen. Critcher  of Little Rock:  Requires parental consent before performing an abortion on a minor. - PASSED

2. HB2782 by Rep. Joyce Elliott of Little Rock:  Would have forced doctors, hospitals and all health clinics to inform and provide the "morning-after pill," a drug that in some cases works as an  abortifacient to women who have been raped.  The bill provided no conscience clause to opt out. DID NOT PASS

3. SB74 by Sen. Shawn Womack of Mountain Home:  Before performing an abortion past the 20th week, doctors must advise the mother that unborn babies feel pain. PASSED

 

Marriage Protection, Homosexuality, Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)

4. SJR 17   by Sen. Sue Madison of Fayetteville:  Would have made Arkansas the 36th state to ratify the federal Equal Rights Amendment.  DID NOT PASS

5. HB1119  by Rep Adams and Senator Holt.  Would have prevented  unmarried couples (including homosexuals) from adopting children or being foster parents.  DID NOT PASS

6. HB1136  by Rep Ragland.  Would have required  marriage in all Arkansas Textbooks to be defined

Religious Liberty

7. HR 1005  by Rep. Blair:  Purportedly reaffirmed the concept of separation of church and state. DID NOT PASS

8. HB1488  by Rep. Glidewell:   Authorized the "IN God We Trust" License Plate.  PASSED

9.  HB2971 by Rep. Pritchard: Would have prohibited interference with student-led and student-initiated prayers at public school functions within the state of Arkansas.  DID NOT PASS

 

Immigration - Illegal Aliens

[Family Bills Because of Priority. Illegal aliens often receive better insurance and medical care  the minute they step into our country than people who have worked here all their lives receive.  The monetary and safety cost to citizens is astronomical.  Thirty-three percent of all incarcerations (combining state, local, and federal) in the US are illegal aliens.  The cost for one federal prisoner is $25,000 to $50,000 per year according to which study you use.]

10.  HB 1525 by Rep. Elliott:  Would have provided state-funded college scholarships and/or in-state tuition to the children of illegal aliens.  DID NOT PASS

11.  HB1012 by Jeremy Hutchinson:   An act to authorize enforcement of federal immigration laws by certain police officers. PASSED

12.  SCR9 by Bisbee (Republican Senator Bisbee first sponsored this and then took his name off as sponsor, and it was sponsored by Senate Ed. Committee:  Resolution to encourage Congress and the President to create an expedited naturalization process for undocumented minors and to exempt the minors from prosecution when the minors come forward for naturalization.  PASSED

 

Consolidation

[Family issue because many children would have to have longer bus rides -up to 4 1/2 hour round trips.  Students in at least 36 schools in Arkansas ride at least 3 hours a day and several ride longer than that.  Parents would have to start their days earlier in the morning, and some students already catch the bus in the dark and get off in the dark.  Students would not be able to participate in extracurricular activities and parents would not be able to attend events at the school, and there would be a lot less involvement of parents in decision making.]

 

13.  SB 132 by Senator Ruth Whitaker:  Would have created countywide school districts.  DID NOT PASS

14. HB1289 by Rep. Thompson:  Allowed a school district to close an isolated school area following an annexation or consolidation. (Rep. Ragland told the House that the closure of one financially troubled school in his district would require students to be bused 62 miles to another school.)  PASSED

 

Alcohol

15. HB 1768 by Rep Key:   Allows the detention and arrest of minors who try to purchase alcohol with a false I.D.  PASSED Now Act 1535

16. SB1174 by Senator Terry Smith and Rep. Ledbetter - Would have allowed public drinking  of alcohol in entertainment districts. DID NOT PASS - It passed but was vetoed by the Governor

 

Gambling

17.  SB999 by B. Johnson:  Allows cities or counties by local option election to authorize additional forms of electronic games of skill at horse racing or greyhound racing parks in their communities.  PASSED

Excerpts  from Two Articles

Debate on school prayer bill turns heated
Friday, Apr 8, 2005
By Wesley Brown,Arkansas News Bureau

Despite warnings that House Bill 2971 by Rep. Bill Pritchard, R-Elkins, could lead to lawsuit, interrupt school activities and force school administrators to referee challenges on religious freedom, the education panel easily cleared the bill in a hastily called voice vote.

Afterwards, Pritchard shouted, "God Bless You," and several members of the committee got out of their seats, stopped the meeting and congratulated one other....
 
However, several committee members downplayed Sklar's concerns and questioned the motives of the ACLU.

Rep. Tommy Dickinson, D-Newport, a co-sponsor of HB 2971, said the bill had been vetted through the American Center for Law and Justice, a Washington D.C.-based group that provides legal advice on many religious and constitutional matters.

"I know the ACLU and the ACLJ have often come to battle over these issues," Dickinson told Sklar. The retired high school guidance counselor said student prayer at school events is part of an American heritage that should not be taken away.

Rep. Mark Martin, R-Prairie Grove, questioned Sklar about her personal beliefs and the ACLU agenda.

"Is it fair to say that you would like 'In God We Trust' removed from our money?" Martin asked Sklar, who told him that the question was irrelevant and refused to answer.

Martin, reading from a prepared statement, then accused Sklar and the ACLU of not only being against prayer in schools and seeking to thwart religious expression, but said the group was also anti-Christian.

"Is it not fair to say that you are not interested in religious liberty at all, but instead interested in silencing one religion?" Martin, a Baptist, asked Sklar before committee chair Rep. Joyce Elliott, D-Little Rock, ended his line of questioning.

After a heated back-and-forth between Sklar and Martin, and Elliott's effort to get the debate back on track, Rep. Linda Chesterfield, D-Little Rock, said that co-sponsors of HB 2971 were inflaming the debate to paint opponents of the bill as anti-Christian.
 
BY SETH BLOMELEY ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT-GAZETTE
A bill to allow student-led prayer at public school functions failed to win support from a single member of the Senate Education Committee on Tuesday.
   No senator on the committee offered a motion to endorse House Bill 2971 by Rep. Bill Pritchard, RElkins.
   Four senators were co-sponsors on the bill, but only two ó Sens. Jimmy Jeffress, D-Crosett, and Gene Jeffress, D-Louann ó showed up for the meeting. .....   The bill would prohibit school officials from interfering with student-initiated, student-led prayer at basketball games, baccalaureate events, football games, graduation or "other school events."
   Committee Chairman Sen. Jim Argue, D-Little Rock ó who was the only other committee member to join the Jeffress brothers at the meeting ó told Pritchard he considers himself a "practicing Christian" but has found some public prayers offensive to his beliefs. He said most of the time people should "pray at home."...
 It passed the House Education Committee on Thursday and passed the House on Friday, 75-9.

Senate and House Vote

Senate Vote - HB1525

Elliott

DID NOT PASS

 

[Voting Record on HB 1525  on two different occasions by the Senate and one by the House follows:.    The big fight over this was in the Senate (which is unusual on a bill like this).  Joyce Elliott sort of  slipped this through the House.  She had the committee room packed with supporters, and no one was really prepared to speak against it.  I don't think it would have ever gone through the House had there been time for legislators to seriously consider it.  Some representatives thought of recalling it from the House even.]

House Education Vote on SB 132

 

I had to call Mark Hudson, House Com Legislative Research to get these.  Evidently they don't go on record any other way.  Just like the amendments do not go on record any other way if  they are not first adopted.

 

They needed 11 to pass.  This was the second time it was brought up and they had 9 to 9.  Joyce Elliot would have been ten.  I was told by legislators that she voted, but on the records it shows her as not voting because it would still not have given them the 11 votes they needed. To bring it up a 3rd time they would have had to have 14 (2/3 of  entire committee, not just the quorum,  to pass)  I was told by two representatives on the last  vote that if  Blount had been there, it would have passed.  This vote was not in their records - at least they did not send it to me.  Also on this vote Elliott called it passed but 4 or 5 of  the Com members yelled roll call, and we prevailed.
