'It's cranking up'

The formal reading of bills across the desk in the House this morning went on – and on. At its end, House Speaker Bruce Newcomb commented, “We just read another 33 bills across the desk. I just went through 33 more bills that are just House bills to be introduced on Monday. So it’s cranking up. This week I think we probably had pretty close to 200 bills – so be prepared.”

With the week marking the deadline for introducing new bills in non-privileged committees, stacks of new bills were OK’d by committees for introduction, promising plenty of debate to come.
