Expect a busy week over at the Capitol as a Thursday deadline approaches for passing bills out of their originating chamber. This means that House Bills must clear the House and Senate Bills must clear the Senate before midnight Thursday. There will be bills that die this week after escaping death at the committee deadline two weeks ago.
Some hot topics to look out for include legislation dealing with the Personnel Board, the Senate's version of the "Sunshine" Act, a Senate bill that would de-fund state-supported SuperTalk Radio, and immigration legislation. Should be a busy week. The House gavels in at 2:00 p.m., and the Senate starts at 3:00 p.m.
