  • 2/1/19: After receiving multiple angry messages about his decision to pass over the bill, Jones was able to bring the bills to the Appropriations Committee and make a substitution which added the 3 new cancers but kept the IARC/burden of proof language intact until a study is over. The bill also has to be completely revoted on.
