2021 Legislative Session

Week 7

Week 7 was tough as legislators were in the Capitol until midnight on Cross Over day in order to get all the House bills acted on. Now we move to the second body and hopefully, things will be calmer. We have two weeks left and the budget action will move into full gear. The filing of the House Resolution to impeach the Attorney General also will cause some interesting discussion.
