Lawmakers must give proposal final OK

The proposal has passed on second reading, and a third reading will be held Tuesday, Martin said. Should it pass then, it will go to the House.

"It would make the court case moot and probably the appeals of the local bans would most likely be withdrawn." Martin said.

Still, Dyer wasn't the only person who was disappointed in the ban being lifted.
