Legislative Report: Feb. 13, 2023

It’s day 22. The committees are all very busy. There are still 237 bills in various committees here in the Senate that either need to be heard or acted on. Unlike some other states, every bill gets a hearing, a vote in committee, and then finally, a vote on the Senate floor. There are some states where issues don’t even get heard in committee. We have a very open and transparent system.
