Thursday Wrap: Wearing our stupid hats
Posted July 3, 2014
After 28 amendments and two days of sometimes tense debate, the state House has finished work on its version of a bill to regulate coal ash ponds throughout the state. Like many items left on the General Assembly’s agenda, it is likely headed to a conference committee to work out differences between the House and Senate.
Also in today's version of The Wrap:
- updates from Thursday’s late night House action, including a new ferry tolling bill and a quick fix to an unemployment measure.
- looking ahead to next week as lawmakers look to settle the budget and other legislation where the House and Senate have differences.
- why Rep. Jim Fulghum is withdrawing from his state Senate campaign.
- a quick follow up on last year's controversial abortion bill and why it might not yet have its intended impact.
