Business in the House was once again slowed this week due to requests by members that each bill be read out loud in its entirety. Thankfully, we are moving through Senate bills on the calendar, albeit at a very slow pace. We must consider each of these bills by Wednesday’s deadline for them to stay alive.
We passed a number of measures this week. Here are a few of the highlights:
- SB 2438 requires that school district superintendents be appointed rather than elected.
- SB 2200 limits government regulation by preventing certain requirements from applying to crowdfunding sites.
- SB 2146 helps address infrastructure needs by diverting a portion of sales tax revenue back to municipalities for infrastructure improvements.
- SB 2156 strengthens our human trafficking statute by ensuring that abused children are covered under the statute.
You can view each bill we considered this week, along with an explanation and my vote, on my website here. We will continue taking up Senate bills and revenue bills next week.It is always humbling and awe-inspiring to consider Christ’s sacrifice for us on Good Friday. It is so good to know that we serve a risen savior who demonstrated his love for us by taking our punishment on the cross and rising again to defeat death.
I want to wish you and your family a Happy Easter.
