Point of Order
Representative Staskunas rose to a point of order that Assembly substitute amendment 2 to Assembly Bill 7 was not germane under Assembly Rule 54 (3)(f).
Pursuant to a unanimous consent request by Representative Staskunas, his remarks have been entered into the Assembly Journal.
"Mr. Speaker, I didn't want to rise on the point of order that Assembly Substitute Amendment 2 is not germane to Assembly Bill 7 under Assembly Rule 54. I felt I owed it to you.
Assembly Rule 54 (1) states, "The Assembly may not consider any Assembly amendment or Assembly substitute amendment that relates to a different subject or is intended to accomplish a different purpose than that of the proposal to which it relates or that, if adopted and passed, would require a relating clause for the proposal which is substantially different from the proposal's original relating clause or that would totally alter the nature of the proposal."
The amendment's relating clause is clearly substantially different. The original bill did not relate to late voter registration, a requirement for electors to provide a signature when voting in person at an election, the duration and location of residency for voting purposes, voting a straight party ticket, voter registration information, the statewide voter registration list, or voter registration activities. Those are seven items that were not in the original relating clause.
In addition to the dramatic changes to the relating clause, the amendment substantially expands the scope of the proposal in violation of Assembly Rule 54 (3)(f). The amendment repeals, amends or creates seventeen sections of the statutes that were not referenced in any way in the original bill. Discounting simple cross-references in the original bill, the amendment repeals, amends or creates twenty-five sections of the statutes that were not referenced in the original bill.
Since the amendment dramatically changes the relating clause while radically expanding the scope of the proposal, I hope that you will find the amendment not germane under Assembly Rule 54."

Ruling on the Point of Order
Speaker Pro Tempore Kramer ruled the point of order not well taken. The full text of the ruling by Speaker Pro Tempore Kramer follows:
"Representative Staskunas rose to the point of order that Assembly substitute 2 amendment to Assembly Bill 7 was not germane to the original relating clause under Assembly Rule 54 (1) generally, and specifically rule 54 (3)(f).
Prefacing his ruling, as Assembly substitute amendment 1 was the bill under consideration by the Joint Finance Committee, and Assembly substitute amendment 2 was the bill under consideration by the full Assembly, Speaker Pro Tempore Kramer briefly explained that several items were removed from ASA 1 to become ASA 2:
MOVE Act (federal military access)
Moving the September partisan primary date
ASA 2 defined residency
ASA 2 provided conforming language on college identification
A312 Speaker Pro Tempore Kramer ruled the point of order not well taken because the amendment under consideration did not expand the scope of the legislation, but rather narrowed the scope of the bill and was proper under Rule 54 (4)(c). The rule cited in the point of order [Rule 54 (1)] states, "The Assembly may not consider any assembly amendment or assembly substitute amendment that relates to a different subject or is intended to accomplish a different purpose than that of the proposal to which it relates or that, if adopted and passed, would require a relating clause for the proposal which is substantially different from the proposal's original relating clause or that would totally alter the nature of the proposal."
Specifically, Assembly substitute amendment 2, the successor legislation to Assembly substitute amendment 1, which was adopted in the Assembly Committee on Elections and Campaign Reform, doesn't accomplish a different purpose or relate to a different subject because of the fact that the purpose and subject of both the bill and the substitute amendment are to create a photo identification requirement for voting at elections. This is the primary purpose of the bill and the substitute amendment does not change this purpose at all. Thus Assembly substitute amendment 2 is also clearly germane and in accordance with Rule 54 (4)(b).
Further, the substitute amendment does not actually "require" a substantially different relating clause. Both the bill and the substitute amendment could have had a broader and more general relating clause that would have effectively described the subject of the bill and substitute amendment. Instead, it was the bill drafter's judgment to describe the bill and substitute amendment in greater detail. Each Legislative Reference Bureau drafter decides by his or her own judgment what amount of detail to include in a relating clause. And, different drafters have different approaches to constructing relating clauses. For example, Assembly Bill 86 relating to early release has a relating clause consisting of a grand total of three words. It is therefore reasonable to expect different drafters, on occasion, to use more extensive or descriptive relating clauses.
