That is how long it took the House of Representatives on Saturday morning to dispose of a motion to reconsider the redistricting plan vote.
The plan passed Friday by a 66-56 margin, but was held on a motion to reconsider. House Speaker Billy McCoy, D-Rienzi, called the rare Saturday session of the Legislature, saying he wanted to get the contentious issue resolved.
On Saturday morning, House Apportionment and Elections Chair Tommy Reynolds, D-Water Valley, moved to table the motion to reconsider. There was a loud voice vote in favor of tabling the motion and a loud voice vote opposed.
McCoy moved the motion was tabled. Members have an opportunity to stand to demand a roll call, but the required number did not.
The plan now goes to the Senate where many expect Republican Lt. Gov. Phil Bryant to try to block it.
Bryant spokesman Mick Bullock said, "The fact that 56 Republicans and Democrats in the House voted against the House leadership's reapportionment plan indicates that the members of the Senate should carefully examine the plan for fairness. The lieutenant governor believes ... the House should do the same with the Senate plan."
McCoy said each chamber should draw its own plan and the other chamber should sign off on it. That's the way the process has worked in the past, McCoy said.
The plan is opposed by most of the 53 Republicans in the 122-member House. Most, such as Rep. Bubba Carpenter, R-Burnsville, said they like how their district is redrawn, but do not like the overall plan.
Carpenter said he does not believe the plan represents the state, mainly because he and other Republicans believe the overall plan is not fair to them.
Reynolds said the plan is fair. The number of precincts where voters will be split between House districts will drop from 449 to 171, he said. Plus, the number of municipalities that are split will be reduced from 127 to 106 and fewer counties also will be split.
If a plan is not adopted soon, legislators most likely will be forced to run for election this year and again next year.
