One week down, three to go at the 2010 Budget Session in Cheyenne. State lawmakers had last week to introduce their bills, and were limited to five per legislator, bringing the total introduced to about 145.
Representative Rosie Berger of Big Horn, who co-chairs the Joint Appropriations Committee, says that this week the bills will switch chambers, and the majority are being worked in Committee. Of the 2010 Budget, she tells us.
Some of the hot bills this session include the ban on texting while driving, which Berger says has gotten more traction this year than ever before. And while for most people it's a common sense issue, Berger says.
And Berger wishes to clarify her vote on House Bill 28 on Firearms Freedom.
