And another week in the Capitol is behind us. The workload is picking up with committees hearing new bills every day. Some bills survive the committee to be heard on the floor of the house, but many don’t make it out of committee. One bill that didn’t make it out of committee is the primary seat belt law; it looks like legislators will have to wait for another session to try again. H.B. 24 is one that will be heard on the House floor next week. It will provide protections from financial exploitations from people that are put in authority to protect vulnerable people.
