Please note bills that are stricken and color-coded are “technically dead. (April 1 was the last day to read in committee reports from the opposite house, except fiscal/transportation committees.  That cut-off is April 7.)  All bills  will be left on the tracker until then.  Bills highlighted in pink had movement on the floor yesterday (4/2/2015)
