The Senate has passed SB 319 on a unanimous, 34-0 vote. That bill allows school districts coping with limited budgets to shift up to two-thirds of their required school building maintenance match to other purposes, under certain circumstances. That bill also now moves to the Senate. After passing that bill, the Senate went at ease; both parties in the House are still behind closed doors in caucus.
