Looking for something to do this week? How about a trip to the Statehouse to watch some debate? There will be plenty of action. Check out the daily House and Senate calendars at the Legislature’s Web site
The House takes up a bill today that would restructure the court system. It has upset probate judges because it shrinks their numbers and upset assistant judges because it strips them of some responsibilities.
Two of three money bills come up in the House, too. By money bills, we mean legislation outlining transportation work and the House version of the budget to run state government. These bills don’t always produce partisan bickering, but they usually prompt questions.
The House also takes up a miscellaneous tax bill that includes some changes in how the education tax will be assessed on certain homeowners.
In the Senate, a bill that would allow medical marijuana dispensaries comes up for consideration later in the week. No controversy there, right?
