Senate State Government Committee
Not quite half way through the 2017-18 Legislative Session, the Senate State Government Committee, which I chair, has already reported 19 bills and two Senate Resolutions to the full Senate. I take pride in my Chairmanship of this very important committee and am happy to vet the many issues that are referred to us. Of the 19 bills that have been reported, one has become law, Senator Aument’s SB 527 (Act 29) creating the Independent Office of Inspector General, and five have been passed by the full Senate and are awaiting House action, including: Senator Eichelberger’s SB 166 (public employee paycheck protection), Senator Laughlin’s SB 169 (lobbyist disclosure requirements), Senator Scavello’s SB 178 (Historical & Museum Code updates), Senator Schwank’s SB 303 (land conveyance), and Senator Rafferty’s SB 353(land conveyance). I look forward to planned meetings and hearings through the rest of the year.
