- A Senate bill that would make different forms of distracted driving – not just texting – a primary offense.
- The Senate Education Committee approved a comprehensive education bill that provides more scholarships to private schools and revamps the teacher bonus program.
- A House committee approved tort reform and assignment of benefits reform bills.
