June 2019 Legislative Highlights


Hope you are having a great Summer! Thanks again for your support and for contacting me regarding any issue you would like to discuss.  

 
Interim Sessions


Following the completion of the general legislative Session begins the off-season, or "Interim" Session.  Once a month we meet in committees comprised of both House and Senate members and begin to craft and discuss proposed legislation for the 2020 general session.  This year, our first Interim Session was on June 19.
