House Republican leader issues update on 2017 session
House Republican Leader J.T. Wilcox, R-Roy, has issued a clear video update summarizing key legislative achievements and goals for the 2017 session to date.
Wilcox’s take off point for the video is last week’s cutoff deadline for the Senate and House to trade bills approved in each house for consideration by the opposite house. Bills that get sent to the Governor for signature must first be agreed upon by both houses of the Legislature. Adjournment is scheduled April 23.
Wilcox reports on fixes to the Growth Management Act that promise to strengthen the state’s rural economies and the session’s main agenda item: ideas under consideration to fully fund state schools under order of the state Supreme Court.
