I hope you and your
family had a wonderful and relaxing Thanksgiving. Now that we
are in the holiday season, the Legislature will not meet again on the
floor to pass bills until the new year. However, there is still
a lot of work to do at the Capitol. I have
some committee meetings in the next couple weeks, with the
possibility of more to be scheduled. I posted the agendas below:
