What prompted Fiore’s retort heard ’round the state?

Much has been made of Republican Assembly member Michele Fiore asking fellow Republican Assembly member Chris Edwards: “Could you just sit your ass down and be quiet?”

The debate was on an amendment to provide funding for litigation that might arise from enforcement of aspects of Assembly Bill 408, which originally sought to declare the state the owner of certain federal public lands within the state, but which had been gutted to merely seeking local law enforcement powers.

Here is what prompted the outburst:

The amendment failed on a voice vote. The bill failed on a vote of 34-8.
