On April 28, 2011 the House voted 144-4 in favor of referring the proposed measure to the statewide ballot.[2] On May 9 the Senate elections committee endorsed the proposal following a 5-3 vote. The proposal remained pending in the Senate.[3] As of January 12, 2012 the bill was not in queue to be heard by the General Assembly.[4]
