Capitol Update is daily review of state government during the Legislative Session. Today’s topics include:
- Senators approved a bill to require parental consent for minors who want abortions – sending it to the House for near-certain approval.
- State programs and proposed legislation drew scrutiny over how they impact gay, lesbian, and transgender communities.
- The Supreme Court listened to arguments concerning the wording of two proposed constitutional amendments – which the Attorney General claims are misleading to voters.
