Capitol Events: February 11, 2014

The House and Senate have completed work on all their own bills for the 2014 session. Those bills now go across the hall for consideration in the opposite chamber. The Senate voted today to raise the minimum wage by two dollars over the next two years and to repeal the requirement for trans-abdominal ultrasounds for women seeking an abortion. The House voted to reduce the number of SOL tests by 25%, to extend the detention period for those under Emergency Custody Order from 6 to 8 hours and to create a psychiatric bed database for those suffering from a mental health crisis.
