2022 Session - Week 2
Updated: May 9
The second full week of session and things are relatively the same when it comes to the House. Things are slow moving at a snail's pace both on the floor and in the committees; meanwhile, in the Senate, legislation is moving from committee to the floor rather quickly as there wasn't one docket not full on their side of the chamber this week.
With that being said, it was a powerful week for labor, check out this week's highlights below
