    This past week was mostly conference committee meetings, a few final floor actions on exempt bills, and finalizing bills amended by the second chamber. The legislature is now on their break leading up to the Veto Session which will start on May 3 and is scheduled to end on May 11. During the Veto Session they will finish conference committees and consider veto overrides if necessary.

    No new law enforcement related bills during the past week.

    There were so many significant actions on bills with high priority for us this week, instead of listing them here I have prepared two new reports at the links above.

    I will continue to work on the other reports posted during the next week to be sure all topics are up to date from the many changes occurring to bills this past week.
