Last week Rep. Munoz was the pivotal Yes vote on Senate Bill 49, the bill that attempts to establish a medical definition in state law for publicly funded abortions.
Three of Rep. Munoz’s caucus members — Reps. Austerman, Edgmon and Holmes — voted against the bill. Two minority members — Reps. Gara and Guttenberg — joined them in voting No on SB49. If Rep. Munoz had also voted No, the bill would have died in committee.
Instead, because of Rep. Munoz’s Yes vote, SB49 will now go to the House floor and likely become law.
