  • Taking pause to honor public servant Mike Haydon

While consensus hasn’t been reached on important bills dealing with the public employee pension reform, industrial hemp and military overseas absentee voting, the Senate is ready and willing to work on these unresolved issues.

  • Increasing transparency is the goal
