Not many updates since Saturday. These are the bills they seem to be pushing at the moment. They have until August 31 to have them enrolled and presented.
Items with an Asterisk * have changed from the prior week.
Items with a Double Asterisk ** ARE VERY IMPORTANT.
Items with NO in BLUE are bad legislation
Items with GOOD in RED are good legislation
If you need more explanation or details on a specific bill, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org I encourage you to voice your opinion to the appropriate parties, even inactive bills can be revitalized.
Although the activity this week was reduced, there are at least 35 bills that we have been tracking that are ready for a floor vote plus hundreds of others that will wind up on the governor's desk by September 1. Once again, they will try to bury bad bills in the volume so we don't have a chance to review them. This new tactic is because the voters approved a bill several years ago that bills passed and "enrolled" had to have a 3-day grace period for review. Of course, if there are hundreds, it will be virtually impossible to review them all with their last-minute changes. Many of these bills could have been passed and enrolled much sooner, but that would have given everyone too much time to protest. Yet another way for the legislature to ignore the wishes of the voters they are supposed to represent.
