One week into the special session, here’s where things stand:
“The Senate has taken all the appropriate action that we constitutionally could do,” Senate President John Alario said Wednesday, after that chamber approved two bills; one to tap the Rainy Day Fund and the other to use BP money. Those measures are now awaiting a hearing in House Appropriations.
The full House has approved repealing the SAVE Act.
“The contents of it to me were a fiction,” Hammond Rep. Chris Broadwater said when urging his fellow lawmakers to approve the repeal.
That bill awaits assignment to a Senate committee.
