Senate Side (Senate Bill 279)
SB 279 has not yet been scheduled for a hearing in the Senate Judiciary Committee. It's that time in the legislative session when there are a lot of politics going on -- and unfortunately, politics that have nothing to do with Health Security can still slow the bill's progress. We're working hard to get SB 279 on the agenda in Senate Judiciary as soon as possible.
House Side (House Bill 295)
HB 295 is now in the House Appropriations & Finance Committee, but since the appropriation was removed from the bill at its previous committee hearing, we're hoping HB 295 will be released from House Appropriations and be sent to the House floor for a final vote. As on the Senate side, this is a very busy time in the legislative session, and there's a lot going on behind the scenes.
