Tempers, retribution come with vote to repeal abortion ban

Tempers flared after the bill passed the House when Gress motioned for the measure to be immediately transmitted to the Senate and then immediately transmitted to Hobbs unamended.

House Speaker Pro Tempore Travis Grantham, R-Gilbert, said the motion was unnecessary and one he hadn’t seen in years.

“This is a ridiculous motion that sets a ridiculous precedence and drives a knife further into the wound of a body that just dealt with an awful, disgusting situation for more than three weeks,” Grantham said.

The motion failed 30-30 with Dunn voting with Republicans on the issue. Right before the House adjourned, Grantham announced Gress (R) was removed from his committee assignment from the House Appropriations Committee and House Assistant Minority Leader Oscar De Los Santos, D-Laveen, was removed from his committee assignments on House Appropriations and the House Rules Committee.

Toma said he wasn’t considering committee changes for Dunn or Wilmeth. He said Gress was removed “because I’ve decided it.”
