The close of week seven brings with it a very important cut-off date: fiscal committee cut-off. If a bill has a fiscal impact, it must be successfully voted out of its fiscal committee by close of business today or it is dead. This week’s update will focus on the status of our bills related to WACOPS, including both bills that we support and bills we oppose.
IMPORTANT: While you read through the list, please remember that even if a bill appears dead, there is always the possibility that further along in the legislative process the dead bill will be deemed “Necessary to Implement the Budget”, be resurrected from the dead, and passed into law along with the budget. Nothing is over ’til it’s over, as they say.
