First Group of Priority Bills Passed!

A number of important bills, including some of our top priorities, have now passed both chambers and will be presented to the Governor this week for his consideration. Because they passed more than a week before the session ends, the Governor has six days to sign or veto them, thereby giving the general Assembly enough time to override any vetoes.

  • SB 691 – Juvenile Justice Reform
