February 29, 2020

The Legislature just completed their third week of policy committee hearings for the session, and have another 3 weeks until the first committee deadline.

Very few of the tort reform bills on your tracking list are expected to be considered this session, with the partisan divide on this issue between the House Democrats and the Senate Republicans.

The House is expected to pass a number of bills expanding rights for employees, including family/pregnancy leave, sick leave, noncompete covenants prohibition, and several human rights law changes; the Senate is not expected to pass those bills.

The February forecast was released on Thursday and shows a $1.513B projected surplus for FY 2020-21, $181M larger than was forecast in November. The Governor is expected to release his supplemental budget/tax proposal in the next 10 days.
