Ruling on the Point of Order
On Wednesday, May 13 (page 167 of the Assembly Journal), Representative Kapenga rose to a point of order that Assembly Amendment 15 to Assembly Bill 192 was not germane under Assembly Rule 54 (3)(f).
Speaker Pro Tempore August ruled the point of order well taken. The full text of the ruling by Speaker Pro Tempore August follows:
“Representative Hebl contended that Assembly Amendment 15 to Assembly Bill 192 was germane under Assembly Rule 54 (4)(e). Assembly Bill 192 generally adds a requirement for certain unemployment insurance claimants to submit drug tests to receive claims. Assembly Amendment 15 to Assembly Bill 192 seeks to expand drug testing to a group of individuals who, at the time of the claimant testing, would not be eligible to become a claimant under current unemployment insurance law. Assembly Amendment 15 to Assembly Bill 192 is certainly not covered by Assembly Rule 54 (4)(e) as the amendment does in fact seek to make changes beyond particularized details. The amendment seeks to expand the testing well outside of the unemployment insurance program. This clearly substantially expands the scope of the bill. I find Representative Kapenga’s point of order well taken.”
