State lawmakers reconvene today for a min-session of sorts, expected to last a few days, in order to focus on a handful of items. Making the most headlines, is the consideration of an amendment to the state constitution defining marriage as between one man and one woman.
There are a number of other bills on the agenda as well, however. The House is expected to reconsider some vetoed bills, including HB 351 – the bill requiring a photo ID to vote, SB 709 – a bill to allow drilling for oil and natural gas off the coast, and SB 727 – which would eliminate the dues checkoff for public school employees. The Senate’s most notable item for business is HB 61 – which would limit the terms of House and Senate leadership roles to two sessions.
