    Report from the State House
    One of the first things you learn about being in the state Legislature is that no two sessions are the same. When the statewide offices and the Legislature have new leadership and committee chairs, it has a big effect on how bills will move through the process. Currently there are very few Senate bills in the House of Representatives for us to consider and amend. The Senate doesn’t seem to be taking up very many House bills either, so if this trend continues then the number of bills making it to the governor by May 12 will be very small. That is not always a bad thing to happen.
