The House met briefly again to pass Senate Bill 2002 - Allowing certain tax information be shared with designated DOH employees. The bill completes legislation.              

Action was postponed on Senate Bill 2003 and the House passed Senate Bill 2005.

The House is in recess until 8:30 p.m.

The House met again to pass SB 2003 - Implementing special hiring procedures for DOH and Tax Division. The bill passed with an additional amendment offered by Delegate Howell. The Senate concurred in the House amendment for the bill to complete legislation.
