They did the exact same thing as the politicians in California did — when they saw that their arguments did not hold water, they stopped the bill from being discarded (as it should) and instead kept it alive by making another meeting in which the public will not be allowed to testify.

….so that means that none of the lawmakers can speak, either, eh? /snark
