This Friday marks the deadline for bills to pass out of their respective fiscal committees. As such committees in both chambers have held packed public hearings and executive sessions to hear and act on bills.
This week the House and Senate appropriations and finance committees held several public hearings focusing on a range of topics from veterans’ access to higher education to changes in financial aid policy. Both committees focused on moving bills from the fiscal committee to their respective chamber floors.
Next week both chambers will head to their respective floors to vote on bills and move them to the other chamber and another step forward in the process.
