Today at the Capitol

HB 1352 passed thirds this morning. After concurrence it will move to the Governor's desk. A huge thanks to Senators Steadman and Mitchell and Rep. Waller for carrying this bill. This is the drug sentencing reform bill. The end of shackling of women giving birth also passed through House Judiciary (SB 193).  This afternoon it passed through 2nd reading in the House.  Just a few more steps!! Thank you Senator Hudak and Representative Levy.
