This Week in the Legislature, Feb. 27, 2012

■ Today: The House Agriculture, Livestock & Natural Resources Committee is to consider a bill dealing with nitrates in the state’s rivers and lakes.
■ Wednesday: The Senate State, Veterans & Military Affairs Committee will look at a bill to allow county commissioners to be elected by districts.
■ Next week: The Joint Budget Committee will continue its work on finalizing next year’s budget in advance of the next revenue forecast, due by month’s end.
