State of emergency~ Senator Richardson

Posted on 06-16-2022

For much of the pandemic, legislators were not a part of the decision-making process as it related to the State of Emergency orders. I believe this has to change. That is why I introduced Senate Bill 324, which requires the legislature to approve an Emergency Order renewal beyond the initial 60 days. The legislation closely mimics that of Representative Collins’s House Bill 49, of which I was the lead Senate sponsor.
