__________________
Point of Order
Representative Gottlieb rose to the point of order that Assembly substitute amendment 1 to Assembly Bill 447 was not germane under Assembly Rule 54 (1) and 54 (4)(d).
Speaker Pro Tempore Staskunas ruled the point of order not well taken. The full text of the ruling by Speaker Pro Tempore Staskunas follows:
__________________
Ruling on the Point of Order
"Under AR 54 (2), the presiding officer has the authority to rule on the admissibility of any assembly amendment or assembly substitute amendment when the question of germaneness is raised. AR 54 provides a number of tests to help the presiding officer determine whether or not an amendment is germane.
The sub does change the relating clause. However, a change in the relating clause is not necessarily enough to determine that an amendment is not germane because AR 54 (1) specifies that the change to the relating clause must be "substantially different" for an amendment to not be germane. "Substantially" is not defined in the rules and is therefore left to the judgment of the presiding officer. On this point, I refer to a ruling made by former Speaker Pro Tempore Freese on November 1, 2001. ASA 1 to 2001 AB 579 made significant changes to the relating clause of the original bill. However, the Chair ruled that the changes did not reach the level of "substantially different."
The sub does expand the scope of the bill. However, AR 54 (3)(f) again uses the word "substantially" and specifies that an amendment must substantially expand the scope of the proposal in order to not be germane. On this point, I specifically point to the germaneness rulings on ASA 1 to 2003 AB 4, ASA 1 to 2001 AB 579, AA 17 to 1999 AB 465, ASA 2 to 1999 AB 941, and ASA 1 to 1981 AB 590. For more information, please refer to the Assembly Journals.
The original bill was introduced for the purpose of regulating the payday lending industry. The sub regulates the payday lending industry in a different manner. Therefore, the sub meets the test under AR 54 (4)(b).
The sub does amend a chapter of the statutes that is not referenced in the original bill. However, there is nothing in the rules that specifically prohibits an amendment from amending sections of the statutes that are not referenced in the original bill. In this case, the changes to Section 20.144 will allow the Department of Financial Institutions to fulfill an important role in the regulation of the payday lending industry.
The sub provides an appropriation necessary to regulate the payday lending industry. Therefore, the sub meets the test under AR 54 (4)(d).
The sub relates to the particularized details of regulating the payday lending industry. Therefore, the sub meets the test under AR 54 (4)(e).
In conclusion, I find the gentleman's point of order not well taken."
