Tuesday was a rare day off for me this past legislative session; the rest of my Argus Leader colleagues chipped in to cover various bills and hearings.
I’m back on the job today, but to stay up on what happened yesterday, read on:
Here’s a roundup of committee action, including the defeats of marijuana and animal cruelty bills, and the withdrawal of a proposal to give tax credits to children in private schools.
Here’s a story about legislators passing an extension of a bill giving school districts more flexibility in tapping their reserves.
And here’s an article about the passage in the Senate of a resolution raising the threshold for initiated measures raising taxes.
