Legislative Report (Vol. XXVI No. 10) March 16, 2007

March 16, 2007

Bill Status

With the passing of the first funnel date this past week many bills became ineligible for debate in their present form. At the end of the narrative portion of this report you will find a status report of bills still alive for debate. Following that section are bills that died because of the funnel or passed Committee and were assigned a different file number. As always the usual disclaimer, any bill no longer eligible by funnel requirements can still be resurrected in other bill forms or as an amendment. However the general rule of thumb is that once dead, always dead. Also a reminder that Appropriations and Ways and Means Bills are not subject to any funnel dates.

Bills in Bold have a direct impact on AEAs.

Other

In other action this week:

  • Governor Culver signed the $1.00 a pack cigarette increase into law.
  • Action on the "fair share" legislation was derailed because of a lack of votes to pass it at this time. Legislative rules will preclude it from being debated this next week because during the coming week each chamber can only debate bills that originated in that chamber. The debate will most likely take place again.
  • A House subcommittee began discussing the Teacher Quality Bill this week and will resume its' discussion this next week.
