What's Left On Our To-Do List?
Due to several hours of debate on a handful of bills (designating the Bible as the official state book, abortion restrictions, etc.) and lengthy floor calendars, legislators did not get to the few remaining bills that we're watching this past week. However, they will absolutely be heard next week! According to the most recent calendars, the House is scheduled to have floor sessions Monday-Thursday. Right now, the Senate is only scheduled to have a floor session on Tuesday.
As many of you know, it's hard to say anything's for certain this time of year at the Capitol, but legislators are striving to adjourn by the end of next week. Both the House and Senate have passed the budget, but there are still many bills that need to be heard on the floor. Please check our Facebook and Twitter pages frequently next week, as well as our website. Any information that we've listed below could easily change with little to no warning. If you have any questions about what's likely to be the final days of the 109th General Assembly, please don't hesitate to give A.J. or Jerry a call at (615) 269-7111.
