We are in the third week of the regular session and many bills received a full committee hearing. At this point, all anti-business legislation failed during the process. Minimum wage, equal pay for state contractors and detrimental workers' compensation measures are halted.
Although the regular session is due to end on June 4, the plan is to adjourn early. An additional special session focused on taxes and fiscal matters may be called in mid May. There are varying numbers as for how much of the proposed budget shortfall exists.
