The 2014 legislative session is almost at an end and we’re still standing. Here’s a little update on where we are, in no particular order, moving into these final days.
- HB1122, a clean-up bill, defines “locked and enclosed” among other things. Passed and already signed by the Governor.
- The Whizzinator Bill (HB-1040) was killed in committee. Essentially it came down to ridiculousness. It started out as a felony, then got dropped to a misdemeanor, then a civil fine. We killed it before the debtors prison bill (HB1061) passed, so the ridiculous argument went like this:
If this bill passes…
You get fired for faking a drug test (assuming you get caught).
You can’t get unemployment.
You can’t get a job.
You can’t pay your civil fine.
