The Senate gave approval to Senate Bill 15 back in February with an 108 to 32 vote. Today, it was passed by the full House of Representatives with a unanimous 95 to 0 vote. Given it was amended slightly in the House, it will need to go back to the Senate for one final vote before it can be sent to Governor Eric Holcomb for consideration.
