Week 1 Update

Week one of the Legislative General Session.

Numbered bills for Rep. Fred C. Cox

H.B. 29 Liquefied Petroleum Gas Board Amendments
passed the House and in Senate Transportation and Public Utilities and Technology Committee

H.B. 126 Design Professionals - Amendments
on House Business and Labor agenda for Feb. 2

H.B. 162 Construction Trades Continuing Education Amendments
in House Business and Labor

H.B. 177 Absentee Ballot Amendments
in House Rules

See the above link for more information and also for some bills in the works. Some of those and other bills may not be required because of other proposed legislation, including alcohol restrictions for those on probation and parole and disabled adult child guardianship. Some bills may not be drafted this session. The bill request list should be updated by February 5th.

Remember, any bill may change and that could change my support or opposition.

I was willing to support one bill on Friday until a last minute substitute made the bill worse than the law we have now. I attempted to block the substitute and when that failed, hold the bill in committee. That motion failed. I then voted against the bill having other Representatives voting with me. The bill still passed the committee for more debate on the Floor of the House.

I have also been very involved in debating, amending and voting for and against many other bills, along with on going discussions on the budget and policy decisions.
