Daily Update – Apr 3

The House ran the last bill of the 2017 Regular Session this morning.

One of our final actions was to pass the Senate version of the Revenue Stabilization Act. This is our balanced budget for the next fiscal year which includes increases to education, foster care, and correctional facilities.

The House also passed SB586 which requires any person convicted of a felony offense while using a computer or the internet to pay an additional fee. The cybercrime fee of up to $500 would go to fund law enforcement training in the investigation of crimes involving computers, electronic devices or the internet.

The House also passed SB563 which limits inmates in the Department of Correction from filing civil action lawsuits if the individual has filed 3 previous suits that have been ruled as frivolous or failed to make a claim.

The House will return for Sine Die adjournment, currently scheduled for May 1, to complete any unfinished business or address Governor vetoes.
