House Agenda

Posted on 01-18-2023

The House of Representatives will reconvene at 2:00 PM on Wednesday, January 18, 2023.

*** Please Note – The House will run two bills on Wednesday – HS 1 for HB 34 and HB 49.


Remember when parents were being threatened if they wanted to speak at a school board meeting and didn’t agree with the board…   Well HS 1 for HB 34 addresses that.  

Thumbs up.
