This Week in the General Assembly: May 31st-June 4th
Updated: Jun 13
There aren’t a lot of bills up for hearing this week, but many are scheduled for consideration! This means you can’t testify on those bills, but you can tune in on Capitol TV to watch the vote or call your senators to lobby their votes directly.
These are definitely not all the bills being heard this week, rather a sampling of bills you, the members of the Women’s Caucus, may be interested in.
