This time of year in the Legislature can be confusing for those watching the process from afar. All Senate bills have been heard and voted on by the House and vice versa. Bills approved have been sent to the governor’s desk, with many already signed into law. Those with amendments stricken or rejected now are in conference committee where committee members from both chambers will either agree on language to be sent back to a vote of both chambers or, if agreement can’t be reached, the bill will die.
