Dear Friends and Neighbors,
We are approaching the first cutoff date of the 2015 legislative session. This Friday is the policy committee cutoff date, meaning House bills must be passed out of their respective policy committees or they are likely “dead” for the session. The cutoff for the fiscal committees is next week, Feb. 27. Of course bills necessary to implement the budget “NTIB” are exempt from cutoff dates. For more on cutoff click here.
In this week's update I touch on the Senate's transportation proposal and small business-killing legislation we heard in the House Appropriations Committee, and you can watch my legislative update where I discuss my bill that would change red light camera laws.
