I sat down and watched the live-streaming of the committee discussion. The original issues I had with the bill being so generic I think have been addressed with an amendment to the amendment.
if the threat is sufficient to cause a well-founded fear in a reasonable person that the threat will be acted upon.
IANAL but that sounds like a very defined language with little room for legal game playing. I do believe it is close to what we already have for Self Defense. Also the penalty was dropped from Second Degree Felony to Third Degree.

Now we need to see the Senate version match this one. They are about halfway there and I would love to see the “well-founded” clause inserted.
