HB 364 Motion to Circle
Worth 1 point on the scorecard. Pro-Life Utah supported a “nay” vote. This motion passed
Rep. Lee Perry (R) motioned to circle HB 364 (The Ultrasound Bill). A motion to circle freezes a bill on the legislative reading calendar and the lawmakers move onto the next bill in the queue. The bill can only be voted on if there is a “motion to uncircle” the bill later. The circling of this bill had the effect of killing the bill. After the last day of legislative session, all bills that have not passed through both chambers in the legislature die. By freezing this bill on the final day of the legislative session, the representatives knew this bill would not be voted on in time and would be killed.
