On Friday, the 2023 legislative session hit the first of several deadlines intended to keep the Legislature on track and whittle down the total number of bills to only those measures with broad enough support among members.
The first of these deadlines is known as “policy cutoff.” It’s the last day for bills to be passed out of their respective policy committees. Bills that are before a fiscal committee, such as Ways and Means or Transportation, have slightly more time. The fiscal cut off deadline is this Friday, Feb. 24.
Several of my bills survived the first cutoff. You can read more about those below.
