This Week in the Legislature, April 2, 2012
The 2012–13 spending plan is in, and the House will spend much of the week debating it.
■ Today: The full Senate is expected to take up a measure that would extend in-state tuition rates to the children of illegal residents.
■ Tuesday: The Senate Local Government Committee will hear a bill to ensure wind-energy rights stay with the owners of the land it blows over (unlike mineral rights under the ground, which are severed from surface property rights).
■ Wednesday: The Senate State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee will debate a bill to require voters to show photo identification before casting a ballot.
■ Thursday: The full House is to take its final vote on the budget bill.
■ Friday: House and Senate closed in observance of Good Friday.
■ Next week: It will be the Senate’s turn to debate and vote on next year’s spending plan.
