Happy Valentine’s Day! It’s fitting today is the day for love. Because if there’s one theme to represent our session this year, it’s a love for our Commonwealth. We’re showing affection for our environment by passing landmark energy bills. We’re showing our passion for our schools by supporting the Governor’s huge increase in education funding. And, of course, we’re protecting everyone’s ability to love whoever their heart desires!
Feb. 11th is designated as this year’s Crossover. This deadline means the House must complete all its legislation that needs to be sent over to the Senate for their action on it, and vice versa. While this year’s session brought with it a record number of bills introduced, it’s looking like we are on track to meet Crossover’s deadline!
