Just before the Senate adjourned early Sunday morning, Republican state Sen. Ty Masterson moved to force the chamber to consider judicial confirmation at sine die.
Shortly before 3 a.m., Masterson motioned for the Senate to pull a proposed constitutional amendment out of committee that would give the governor the ability to appoint judges to the Supreme Court with Senate confirmation.
Masterson's motion came a week after the state Supreme Court found that the state Constitution protected a woman's right to an abortion.
The motion will be considered at sine die on May 29. It will take 24 . . .
