There was no suspense and nary a word of discussion to precede it. The House Government Operations and Elections Committee voted 11-to-0 today to send Republican Rep. Gary Alexander’s primary-election voter pamphlet bill to the full House for consideration.

House Bill 1211 would cost about $1 million per budget cycle and pay for a state voter pamphlet for primary elections. It is the first of a handful of elections bills identified by Democratic committee chairman Sam Hunt for passage this year.

My elections bill roundup post from last week is here.  HB 1211 needs approval by House Rules before getting a floor vote.
