Another week interrupted by a winter storm, this time by one named "Pax." I hope all of you were safely in your homes and that you did not lose power. The House closed up shop on Tuesday and did not meet again last week. We re-convene tomorrow and will be voting on seven bills. Before we left to avoid the storm we did pass a revised Adjournment Resolution with a schedule for the rest of the Legislative Session. Barring future changes, the 2014 Session will end on Thursday March 20th.
Committees will once again be playing catch-up as we approach Crossover Day. You can see all bills that have passed the various Committees on the General Calendar.
