FUNNEL DAY: Minimum Wage Increase Among Bills Killed
Friday was the second funnel day at the State Capitol.
Bills had to make it out of committee by the end of the day to stay alive for the rest of the session.
Among the bills still up for consideration are a crackdown on bullying in schools, banning minors to use e-cigarettes, legalizing fireworks and regulating drones.
Among the bills killed by today’s funnel are traffic camera regulations, texting while driving, a minimum wage increase, voting rights for convicted felons and banning minors from using tanning beds.
Funnel deadlines are used to lower the amount of bills trying to move their way through the legislature.
This session is scheduled to end on April 22nd.
