Hi Everybody,

 

The Bill Tracking Report and List of Bills by Topic pages have been updated today.


The Senate is moving slowly on legislation. Only a handful of bills were voted on yesterday. The House is moving more quickly through bills. This is typical. The Senate spends a great deal of time in caucuses to decide what issues to take up. The House spends more time actually debating issues on the floor.

 

Two noteworthy bills passed the House this week and are now before the Senate:


HB 6738 AN ACT IMPLEMENTING THE RECOMMENDATIONS OF THE PROGRAM REVIEW AND INVESTIGATIONS COMMITTEE CONCERNING THE FEDERAL ACHIEVING A BETTER LIFE EXPERIENCE ACT.

HB 6765 AN ACT CONCERNING INTERPRETER QUALIFICATIONS.


Session ends Wednesday, June 3. So if you have a bill or two that matter to you, this is the time to contact legislators.

 

Take care, and as always, feel free to contact me at any time!

 

Beth
