Representative Black rose to the point of order that assembly substitute amendment 2 to Assembly Bill 1056 [relating to burning yard waste and providing
an exemption from rule-making procedures] was not germane under Assembly Rule 54 (3) (f).

[Note:] A.Sub-2 substituted changes in the existing health insurance structure for the bill's broad-based approach to health insurance market reform.

Exchanging one group of individual propositions for a different group of individual propositions is, probably, not germane under A.Rule 54 (3) (a).

A.Amdt-16 to A.Sub-1 tried to incorporate another unrelated individual proposition, "limiting medical malpractice noneconomic damage awards".

A.Amdt-20 to A.Sub-1 deleted most of the substitute amendment's content and attempted to replace the bill's approach to universal health care under private and group insurance with a basic health insurance plan incorporating medical assistance and general relief.

A.Amdt-22 attempted to prohibit health insurance coverage of nontherapeutic abortions.

A.Amdt-31 attempted to create a new state government agency, the "council on health care fraud and abuse".

[Note:] A.Amdt-3 created a new process, not found in the existing law prohibiting sexual harassment, for "the awarding of costs and attorney fees against a person who asserts a frivolous claim or defense in a sexual harassment proceeding under the fair employment law".

Any amendment that "substantially expands the scope of the proposal" is declared not germane by A.Rule 54 (3) (f).
