The Legislative update this week is a short update for several reasons. First, many of the committee meetings have been discontinued as the Legislative session is coming to a close.  Second, the state web site appears to not have been updated Friday to list the meetings and floor sessions for the coming week.  Consequently, we have completed the update for the committee meetings we are aware of at this time.

  • Bottle refund programs for distributors
  • Possession of illegal substances
  • And others…
