The House Ways & Means Committee, the leadership panel that often plays a late-session role in swiftly moving legislation, has scheduled its first meeting of the year for this afternoon, either at 1:30 or on adjournment of the House. The agenda includes possible introduction of six proposed bills: Two from House Speaker Scott Bedke regarding irrigation districts and eminent domain; two regarding urban renewal from Reps. Youngblood and Malek; one from Rep. Brent Crane on renewing administrative rules; and one from lobbyist and former Rep. Kris Ellis on behalf of First American Title on closing protections.
The meeting will be in the JFAC room, C310.
