January 22, 2010 LEGISLATIVE DATABASE
BUSY TIME AT THE STATE HOUSE!
The week of January 18 was a very busy week at the State House even with the Monday holiday. Committees are working long hours to hold public hearings and work sessions on many bills each day, as well as review the Governor’s Supplemental Budget request (LD 1671) in order to report recommendations back to the Appropriations Committee. Starting on Tuesday, January 26 the Appropriations Committee will start to hold work sessions to receive Committee recommendations relating to the budget. On the 26th, it hopes to hear from the Natural Resources Committee, the Inland Fisheries & Wildlife and Marine Resources Committees, and will hold work sessions throughout the week to receive and discuss recommendations from Committees. The work sessions will continue into the week of February 1, concluding on February 2 with the work session on recommendations from the Health & Human Services Committee.
