There won’t be any action on the House and Senate floor until next week, the third week of the special session.

But lawmakers on the budget-writing committees are working today. Among the bills that could get a vote today in either House or Senate Ways and Means committees:

  • SB 5542, creating an exception to the state smoking ban for cigar lounges.
  • HB 1132, suspending cost-of-living increases in school-employee pay for another two years.
  • SB 5912, expanding family planning services, intended to save money by avoiding the cost of unwanted pregnancies.
  • SB 5587, ending a property tax deferral program for poor homeowners.
  • HB 2065, which deals with funding for students in online learning and other alternative programs.
