Wilson had objected and maintained his objection.                                                                               
                                                                                                                                
SENATOR GIESSEL asked if a "yes"  vote meant to move the bill and                                                               
a "no" vote meant not to move the bill.

SENATOR  EGAN  asked  if  he   could  still  sign  the  bill  "no

CHAIR DUNLEAVY answered yes.                                                                                                    
                                                                                                                                
He asked for a roll call vote.                                                                                                  
                                                                                                                                
A roll call  vote was taken. Senators Giessel,  Egan, and Coghill

Dunleavy voted  against it. Therefore,  the motion to move  SB 26
