Monday wrap: Concealed weapons bill, game fish, more protests and arrests
Posted May 6, 2013
Capitol Bureau Chief Laura Leslie and investigative reporter Mark Binker recap a very long day at the state legislature.
Lawmakers started the day with debate on a bill that would classify three species of coastal fish as game fish.
Later, 30 protesters were arrested inside the legislative building, and the House tentatively approved a bill allowing concealed weapons on college campuses, state property, greenways, bike trails, at sporting events and in businesses that serve alcohol.
Monday's wrap also previews Senate Republicans' tax plan, which will reduces sales, income and corporate taxes by curbing government spending.
