End of Committee Hearings This Session

Wednesday at the Capitol was the last day of committee hearings. This means there will no longer be public testimony on any bills. Some of the bills that were voted out of committee on Tuesday are the three anti-choice bills.  H.B. 171, Abortion Clinic Licensing, H.B. 353, Abortion Freedom of Conscience, and H.B. 354, Insurance Amendment Related to Abortions, all passed out of committee with a favorable recommendation. These bills are now set for debate on the house floor and will likely be heard on Thursday. 

On the immigration front, new bills continue to appear, including H.B. 466, Migrant Workers and Related Commission Amendments and a new version of H.B. 70, set to be revealed later this week.

There are only 6 days left in this session, we are counting down the days!
