If you enjoy hearing from state agency staff - presenting agency overviews - than this, my friend, was the week for you ... and the same activities will likely spill into next week as well. It's still early in session and very little has actually happened yet; mostly just legislators meeting with various groups, talking about goals and session priorities. Truth be told, little will happen for a while. Yes, there has been a flood of bill introductions from both the House and Senate, but those bills will not see any action or movement in the immediate near term.
The most notable news to come out this week is that there seems to be
bipartisan agreement that some sort of hands free distracted driving bill will pass this year. Imagine that - a bipartisan bill to start things off. Hopefully that's a good sign.
