Session is winding down, and we have been working hard on our remaining pieces of legislation, including the budget bill. We hosted our second meeting of the inaugural Foster Care Caucus, and I am pleased to announce that all three of my foster care reform bills passed both the House and Senate. Thank you again to everyone who has come to advocate for issues important to you these past couple of months. I look forward to being back home with you soon.
As we close out the third full week of session, we are nearing the halfway point in the legislative process called "Crossover." This is when all surviving Senate bills crossover to the House and vice versa. Additionally, next week we will take up the Senate's version of the budget. We have had a number of visitors this week and some important pieces of legislation passed and defeated. Below you will find some highlights from this past week.
