The House took up hours of amendments and debate on their budget all week. The Senate addressed the House’s tax reform plan, capital punishment and firearms. Additionally, the Governor signed 39 bills into law this week including SB 208 Effective Operation of 1915 (B)/(C) Waiver. Find out what other bills he signed through a press release on his website.
