Commission AND Omission-There is a difference

HB1779/SB1287 has passed the House and yesterday passed a Senate Committee. This is the bill that would allow candidates to correct "omissions". However, during the House consideration of the Bill Rep. Vaughn explicitly asked the sponsor, Rep. Jones, if this bill was intended to cover acts of commission as well as acts of omission. Rep. Jones indicated that both were covered. The definition of "commission" HERE is "The act of committing or perpetrating: the commission of a crime."
