From The House...for the Week of Feb. 24, 2017
With general House Bills out of the way, representatives began working on House Appropriations Bills, which will determine how much money is given to various state organizations.
The House was responsible for looking at the preliminary budgets of 54 state agencies, including the departments of transportation, public health, Medicaid, education and public safety.
Budgets included reverse repealers, a clause which ensures that a bill cannot become law before going to a conference committee for further revisions. With reverse repealers in place, most appropriations bills were voted on in a block to help speed up the process.
