SB1359 – MMA’s bill is in the last few steps of its process. The bill passed the Senate Transportation Committee, Rules, and Third Read (floor vote).
It was transferred to the House where it passed the Transportation Infrastructure Committee 9 to 0 on 2/23/16 and then Rules on 3/7/16.
We had expected it to be through the House and on to the Governor by now, but found that the Governor instructed the legislators to finalize those bills with amendments first, before he received those that didn’t.
We also found out that he wants to finish the budget before hearing the last of the bills.
The MMA Lobby Team has no doubt SB1359 will pass the House Third Read. We have met with the Governors office and are now assured, that the Governor has no intentions in Vetoing it.
All commissions, boards and council that the Governor was after, are being taken care of in a bill (HB2600).
