"Actually, he's not in favor of the entire bill and worked against the bill in the past ... so even though his bill may ... even though some of the things, even if they did have merit ...

Although Jacob was in stiff opposition to the original legislation, he says he would have voted for the bill, had it included his proposed restrictions.
