UPDATED: The House and Senate are at odds again.
The two legislative chambers -- both controlled by Republicans -- blew up earlier this session with disagreements about Senate Bill 10, a bill that sweeps clean many state boards and commissions. That is, until the House and Senate conference committee agreed on a version Wednesday.
But now that compromise is off. The Senate approved the conference report Thursday but the House unanimously rejected it. (See more about the changes below.) Sen. Tom Apodaca, the lead Senate sponsor, appeared frustrated. He suggested the bill is done in its current form. "We are not going back to the table on Senate bill 10," he said. "I guess it’s dead."
The bill could be revived with parliamentary moves, or folded into a different bill.
