This Week in the General Assembly: June 7th-11th

Updated: Jun 10


As we approach the end of session, fewer bills of interest are up for hearing, but many are scheduled for consideration. Scheduled for consideration means these bills get a vote in committee, but you cannot testify on them. However, you can always call or email your senators and reps directly!


If there is a bill you are passionate about scheduled for consideration, either in committee or on the floor, email us to let us know!
