Session may draw to a close this week
Lawmakers headed into overtime last week with a list of issues to tackle.
Some progress was made on the state budget as the parties narrowed their differences and the final pieces of the budget were sent to bi-partisan conference committees to work out agreements. While the state budget is the only item required to be settled before adjourning for the year, there are a host of other issues under consideration right now. Among them are the Governor’s education reform package, property tax reform, and Medicaid expansion.
Most legislators will come back to the Capitol on Wednesday morning. However, those of us who serve on budget conference committees worked Monday and Tuesday. Hopefully, this will put us in a position to wrap up the session later this week when our colleagues get back to the Capitol.
