"I do not want to delay consideration of Senate Bill 7026 until next week, possibly affecting the House's ability to hear the Senate Bill", Senate President Joe Negron, R-Stuart, said in a memo to members Friday morning.
Galvano insists the Senate has the support needed to pass the legislation when the bill comes up for a final vote in the Senate on Monday. Two Republican senators, René García and Anitere Flores, crossed party lines on the vote.
Republicans argued that banning such weapons would violate the Second Amendment right to bear arms.
Republicans have also rebuffed other Democratic amendments to completely ban assault weapons; allow for a registry of semiautomatic weapons; and to remove a program allowing trained teachers to carry firearms in the classroom.

It's a good feeling because if some player can have some speculation around them all this shows that they progress in the team. Charlie Daniels cut the ball back for Junior Stanislas who blazed his side-footed effort wide.
The sweeping proposal, as now drawn, would raise the age to 21 for the purchase of rifles and other long guns, create a three-day waiting period on purchases of rifles and address school-hardening and mental health issues.
It also sets up a "marshal" program to train and arm teachers to protect students in the event of an active shooter. "I don't believe in arming the teachers", Scott said Thursday.
In response to reports that law enforcement and school officials had numerous warning signs to flag troubling behavior by gunman Nikolas Cruz, Galvano said the legislation "empowers law enforcement" to seize and hold firearms for up to 24 hours for anyone who is being held under the Baker Act and longer if they obtain a risk protection order from the court. The $400 million package includes $18.3 million for mobile crisis teams working with the Department of Children and Families and the schools; $500,000 for mental health first aid training; and $69 million for mental health assistance to school districts.
That included a two-year moratorium on the sale of AR-15s and a full-out ban on "assault weapons".
Conrad Sangma stakes claim for Govt formation in Meghalaya
UDP president and RDA chairman Donkupar Roy said that NPP was extended support on the condition that Sangma is made the CM. All these party leaders met Governor Ganga Prasad in Raj Bhawan this evening to stake claim to form the next government.
After the upper chamber debated for almost an hour, Senate President Joe Negron (R) ruled that the amendment temporarily banning the sale of AR-15s had passed in an unrecorded voice vote, the Tampa Bay Times reported.
However, the passage was overturned under reconsideration of the bill fifteen minutes, when every Republican voted against it, leading to a roll call tally of 21-17.
The body then moved to other legislation on guns. They are calling for a ban on the sale of semi-automatic assault weapons. "And I, for one, wont be going home trying to pretend that I did something trying to solve the problem".
