House Passes Amended Tax Reform Act, Roads Bill

The House of Delegates met this morning to discuss Senate Bill 1017, the Tax Reform Act of 2017. The bill was passed by the Senate late last night. Delegates rejected a motion to reject the bill on first reading, suspended the constitutional rule requiring a bill be read on three seperate days and amended it to reflect the work of the Conference Committee on HB 107. The bill was passed overwhelming with bipartisan support.

Also, the House of Delegates had SB 1006, increasing funding for the road fund. The House adopted a House Finance 'strike and insert' amendment on 3rd Reading, and passed the bill. 

Both bills now head to the Senate for their concurrance.

 

After a recess, the House of Delegates passed two similar measures relating to the sale of state owned hospitals. SB 1011, selling Hopemont Hospital and, HB 113, relating to the sale of Jackie Withrow Hospital by the DHHR, both were passed and now head to the Senate for their consideration. 

 

The House is in recess until 7:30 p.m.

House Finance will meet at 5:45 p.m. in 460M.

The Conference Committee on HB 106 will meet at 3 p.m. in 208W.
