1 Franklin Witt introduced SB 39 in the Senate on January 17, 1840. The Senate rejected a substitute bill by a vote of 16 yeas to 24 nays. Senators offered other amendments, which the Senate amended and tabled until July 4 by a vote of 32 yeas to 8 nays. The Senate rejected another substitute, amending the original bill by adding a proviso. The Senate ordered the bill as amended engrossed for a third reading by a vote of 22 yeas to 18 nays. On January 18, the Senate amended the bill by adding an additional proviso by a vote of 21 yeas to 6 nays. On January 20, the Senate further amended the bill, passing the bill as amended by a vote of 21 yeas to 19 nays. On January 24, the House of Representatives rejected an amendment to the last line by a vote of 19 yeas to 65 nays, with Abraham Lincoln voting nay. The House tabled or rejected additional amendments, ordering the bill to a third reading by a vote of 48 yeas to 37 nays, with Lincoln voting nay. On January 28, the House passed the bill by a vote of 47 yeas to 35 nays, with Lincoln voting nay. The Senate ordered the bill enrolled, but on February 1 the Committee on Enrolled Bills ruled that the bill passed by the House was not the same as that passed by the Senate and, therefore, not in a form to lay before the Council of Revision. Senators offered a resolution requesting the speakers of both house sign the bill in order that it might be placed before the Council, but the Senate tabled this resolution by a vote of 20 yeas to 19 nays.
