Re: 2014 Legislative Session – Week 3

________________________________________________________________________

The third week of session ended on Friday. 173 bills were introduced this week. The total number of bills introduced to date is 365 (210 House Bills and 155 Senate Bills). Last year at this time, 404 bills had been introduced. The total number of bills introduced during the 2013 Legislative Session was 492.

This Tuesday, February 4, is the deadline for the introduction of bills sponsored by individual legislators, and Wednesday, February 5, is the deadline for the introduction of bills sponsored by legislative committees. Based on historical averages, I expect that at least 100 bills will be introduced on Tuesday.

Below are bills that may be of interest to licensed beverage dealers. A copy of each bill is available at this web address:
