As we move towards the end of session, legislative action directly impacting ARRM members becomes less frequent as attention turns toward the passage of omnibus bills.
You can review here what is and is not included in the House and Senate Human Service Omnibus bills.
Last week, the Senate Finance Committee heard and passed out of committee the Human Service Omnibus bill. The bill is tentatively scheduled to be heard on the Senate floor this coming Tuesday, April 18th.
In the House, we are still waiting an official scheduling notification for the Human Service bill to be heard in the Ways and Means Committee; this will be the final committee stop before the bill heads to the House floor for a full vote from the body.
Following the passage by both the House and Senate, a Conference Committee will be announced to work out the differences between the two bills. ARRM will update members as soon as legislators are appointed and announced.
Please reach out with any questions.
