  Iowa Constitution, Article 3, Section 29, and asked for an
  interpretation and a ruling from the Chair on this matter.

  The Chair stated on the question regarding Article 3, Section 29 of
  the Iowa Constitution, Mason's Manual of Legislative Procedure,
  Section 6, Chapter 2, states that the legislative process must be
  controlled by the Constitution. The Chair believes that the Senate is
  in compliance, but refrains from a legal analysis of the Constitution,
  because it is not within the purview of the Chair to make a legal
  interpretation, but it is, rather within the purview of the judicial
  branch to make that interpretation.

  Senator Judge asked and received unanimous consent that action
  on Senate File 503 be deferred.

  The Senate stood at ease at 10:21 a.m., until the fall of the gavel for

  presiding.
