What did Steve Cohen say at the end? Why did they cancel the vote? He said someone is not present. What does that mean?

Quorum not present.

Quote:

The quorum is 218. This is the minimum amount of people needed to conduct business.
This makes sense because there are 435 total members in the house of representatives and 217.5 is exactly half.

Rep Cohen supports the bill but said they don't want vote because the requisite number of ppl are not present..which is ok. But they didn't give time of the vote.

what just happened
 
why did they drop the bill?? please explain.

smuggymba 11-29-2011 05:23 PM

I guess no need to worry. Cancelling a vote means voting will be later at 6:30. Everyone in the house supported..only 7-8 were present I guess.

They haven't dropped it. They just don't want to vote at the moment. They might do it later today. Relax.

Thats good news. Where did you get this news?

smuggymba 11-29-2011 05:25 PM

quorum is a group of specified number of ppl that need to be present for business to happen.

jontyrhodes 11-29-2011 05:25 PM

Understand. So they are supporting it but Steve Cohen stopped the Yay and Nay vote as most of the House Reps. were not present in the House. So basically vote will still be conducted in the evening as I understand.
