A proposal to limit over-the-counter purchases of medicines containing pseudoephedrine was passed by a Senate committee on Thursday, but was passed over on the Senate floor.  As a result, the bill's status is uncertain.

The proposal would allow 3.6 grams a month and 15 grams a year of pseudoephedrine to be sold without a prescription.

A floor amendment by Senator Jerry Rhoads, a Democrat from Madisonville, would change those amounts to 7.2 and 24 grams, respectively. 

The bill's sponsor, Republican Senator Robert Stivers of Manchester, said the amended bill would not be heard on the Senate floor Friday morning, but Rhoads and Senator Tom Jensen, a Republican from London, said it was their understanding that it would be.  

The proposal is Senate Bill 3.
