Wednesday Wrap: Empty House

Posted July 22, 2015

— The House wound down its activities for the week on Wednesday, as Speaker Tim Moore and several other members headed to California for the annual conference of the American Legislative Exchange Council, a conservative nonprofit that puts corporate leaders together with state lawmakers.

Meanwhile, the Senate passed bills setting some regulations on Uber and other ride-sharing services and putting a five-year moratorium on the ability of school districts to sue their county boards of commissioners over education funding.

Bills cleared Senate committees that would take oversight of charter schools from the Department of Public Instruction and would block the state from preparing a plan to meet new federal environmental rules, despite a warning from the head of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.
