Senate Advances Special Session Bills to Third Reading


The Senate advanced all 34 bills to third reading during a brief floor session Tuesday morning.

Senate Bill 3026, relating to review, approval, disapproval, or amendment of local boards of health rules by county commission or county board of education, was double referenced to Judiciary and Finance on second reading.

Senate Bills 3033 and 3034, dealing with the redrawing of congressional districts and state senatorial districts respectively, were advanced to third reading with the right to amend. These measures are expected to be discussed on the floor tomorrow, during the amendment stage.


The Senate met briefly on two occasions Tuesday evening so the Judiciary and Finance committees could both review and advance Senate Bill 3026 to the full Senate. The bill will be on third reading tomorrow with the right to amend.
