Delegate Englin of Virginia’s 45th district just emailed me regarding the “personhood” and forced ultrasound bills:
“The Senate actually took up House Bill 1, the “personhood” bill, today. Democrats moved to re-refer the bill to committee and carry it over to the 2013 session. That motion passed on a 24-14 vote. While technically, procedurally, the bill is still alive, as a practical matter, this kills it. Moreover, unless a special committee meeting is held to address the bill between now and the end of the year, the bill procedurally dies.
