Note: Some votes are labeled (Indefinite Study). Frequently, when legislators propose amendments, other lawmakers try to add a section which says that the amendment cannot take effect until a study of the impact has been completed. These studies are rarely intended to be completed. In many cases, this tactic is used to prevent votes on the original proposals.
