An eventful week wrapped up Friday with the House Ways and Means Committee approving several omnibus bills ahead of midnight’s third committee deadline.
As it did a number of times over the last few days, the committee combined omnibus bills Friday. In this case the omnibus veterans and military affairs finance bill, HF2086, was incorporated into the omnibus state government finance bill, HF1935.
House leaders say this is being done to better align the bills with legislation expected to emerge from the Senate’s committee structure.
Committee members also approved the omnibus tax bill, HF2125.
