We didn’t send an update last week as the House and Senate both began what is likely to be months-long summer break. This week, the Senate returns briefly on Wednesday to vote on bills and hold a handful of committee hearings, the highlights of which we’ll note below.
The House is not currently scheduled to return until after the November election but has set aside a few “if needed” dates in September.
Newsletters will be infrequent for the next several months – we’ll only send a dispatch if legislative hearings or sessions are scheduled. You can always view the full legislative calendar online.
Here are the new bills introduced last week that we will be monitoring. You can also view the complete list of bills we’re tracking.
